Anyone coming to the shop over the past couple of years will have noticed, and quite likely, taken one of the lovely Spitalfields Life handbills we have hanging by the door.
Well, now this brilliant blog by The Gentle Author has become a brilliant, and very beautiful book. We are really delighted to have some signed copies of the book in Ryantown from this weekend.
Rob decorated the Staffordshire dogs that grace the cover and has done some of illustrations inside, as has another local artist Lucinda Rogers and the lovely endpapers are by Mark Hearld .
We have a lovely new edition of the 'We Don't Fly North' screenprint.
' We don't fly north. We don't fly south. We stay put right here. 365 days a year. Year in -Year out. The people next door and the floor below and the building next door and the building next door to that. The whole street and the next street and the next street until it seems as if every building in the entire city seemed to join onto it's neighbour to make just one vast single building with only a series of walls between you and every person in the city. Once we were just neighbours now we are friends. We never travelled very far but we went the distance".
In a lovely blue and black colourway, the print is a signed and numbered edition of 50.
