Independent illustration and graphic novel publisher Nobrow Press launched from 62 Great Eastern Street in the winter of 2008. Nobrow Press were quickly recognised as a leader in book design and are now a leading publisher of outstanding graphic novels and children’s books. In early 2010 they opened the Nobrow Shop on Great Eastern Street above their print studio where they showcase the very best in comics, children’s books and artist monographs from around the world.
To celebrate Shoreditch Design Triangle this year, the Nobrow Shop (venue 9) hosts two Nobrow Lates, each showcasing the work of a Nobrow artist: Robert Hunter and Kyle Platts. Both evenings will be intimate affairs in which the artists will share sketch books, original art and give a short talk about their most recent work for the publisher.
17th Sept. 2013 Kyle Platts will give a talk and sign his stunning giant concertina book, Festival Frenzy. Platts’ prints will be available for sale. Refreshments will be provided from 19.00 – 21.00, with the shop open before the talk.
19th Sept. 2013 Rob Hunter will talk about his book, Map of Days, share sketchbooks and prep work and debut a limited edition ‘Map of Days’ print (see above). The event runs 18.00 – 21.00 (talk begins at 18:30). Refreshments provided, arrive early to secure a seat.
Both talks are free and take place at venue 9. Click here for directions on how to find us.
