Independent Publishers Fair Selects


We Have The Great Discontent by Joel Evey
Published by Actual Source

We Have The Great Discontent features an edited selection of strange yet humble inventory announcements taken from the Facebook page of a West Philadelphia printed matter shop, Avril 50. “[The owner] John Shahidi’s inventories read like strange run-on poems, their nonsensical syntaxes recalling Dadaist techniques employed to [free] the unconscious from the domination of reason and tradition.”


Magic Everywhere by Raymond Rojas
Published by Clandestine

Magic Everywhere is a photographic essay that visually explores Disneyland Paris’ theme parks. It is a great series of photographs that show the environment of the parks in a very candid way, a much different light from how we are usually exposed to them.


Cut Copy Paste by Hi Bye Studio
Published by Hi Bye Studio

Holly and Lily are two Illustration grads from Camberwell who have recently started their collaborative practice, Hi Bye Studio. They were invited by Camberwell Press to create something for the South London Children’s Book Fair, and decided on an activity book. It’s got a great spin on it though, in that it is a little more anarchistic than usual, as you’re invited to tear out the pages, collage with them, be messy and ultimately just ruin the book.


Car Park Shopper by Luke Overin
Published by Bronze Age

“Images stolen from the back of a lorry or in a shop window, no book celebrates British boot fair / high street culture better than Luke Overin’s Car Park Shopper.” A mediated combination of Luke’s street photography, stolen signage and re-appropriated graphics.


Shelf Heroes Issue F
by Shelf Heroes

A zine all about celebrating movies, with each issue focussing on movies beginning with a letter of the Alphabet. Issue F features films such as Fargo, Fight Club, Fantasia and The French Connection, with each film being interpreted by a different designer or illustrator.
