Book Launch: The Big Letter Hunt

The incorruptible Design Approval Committee at Tower Block Books

A few months ago I started a publishing company called Tower Block Books together with architect Rute Nieto Ferreira.

Our first publication, The Big Letter Hunt (In the East End of London), is a book about finding letters in the architecture
of the East End.

This is a Riso-printed alphabet picture book; it takes the readers, young and old, on a walk which starts at the Barbican and continues East along the Regent’s Canal, Haggerston, Mile End, Whitechapel and their surroundings, spotting giant letters amongst buildings.

Supported by Hato Press, The Big Letter Hunt is a very local project: it was devised and designed in and around Regent Studios on Andrews Road E8, printed and bound on Scawfell Street E2, and we are now launching the second edition on Sunday 26/10 from 3pm at L’EntrepĂ´t on Dalston Lane, E8, as part of Hackney with a Twist.

There will be a workshop (booking essential), books and limited edition prints at a reduced price, and great wine.
