A fun day last week in the Free Hetherington with Samara, Kirsty and Stephen. We drew about thirty posters for our pending zine and indie press fair. Here are my four favourites:
The zine fair takes place from 3pm on Thursday 2nd June. Come along if you’re in the area.
I have a useful essay in the upcoming Idler 44: Mind Your Business. My piece is called ‘The Business of Escape’ and pulls together some of the economic and entrepreneurial ideas covered in New Escapologist 1-5 and learned through my own experience of being professionally on the lam.
As is now traditional (after three years in its current format) the new Idler edition looks utterly stunning with its fine typography and hardback cloth binding. My essay is in good company too, sitting alongside works from Penny Rimbaud and Bill Drummond et al. The Idler is an astonishing annual event. Copies now available to pre-order at their shop.
Just a quick reminder that there’s a New Escapologist gathering in Glasgow tomorrow. If you fancy coming along, we’ll be at The Arches (beneath Central Station) between 6pm and 9pm.
All are welcome. Bring friends. Meet the creative team behind the magazine, mingle with other readers and buy a copy of the mag. Free entry, naturally.
