I was very pleased to receive a package from Jordan Crane this morning. We now have Uptight no.3 and 4 and copies of Keeping Two with screenprinted covers. If you’re not aware of his work then go over to his excellent site, What Things Do where he publishes his own work as well as stories by some of North America’s best cartoonists.
Also, if the cover of Uptight No.3 looks familiar that’s because a version of that image first appeared in Nobrow 1!
Unfortunately we only have four copies of each title so they are bound to be gone pretty soon. Hurry down to grab one!
I just wanted to highlight this vertigo-inducing image from Von Einem Der Auszog by Doris Freigofas. It’s a beautiful large-format, two colour screenprinted book in which each spread details a different dramatic scene. A tattoo and piercing parlor, a zoo, a swimming pool, a student party, a fire and more, all rendered in blue and red with a dazzling use of negative space. Every page in this book is a sophisticated piece of image making packed full of narrative detail. There where only 50 copies made and we have two of them in our shop (and another in a cabinet in our studio). It’s worth the trip to Shoreditch!
Nobrow 5 was made up of 30 patterns, a selection of which where chosen to be made into wrapping paper. Pictured above is Jill Green’s offering but there are five other designs currently available online with more coming out in the near future. Don’t go for that drab, sorry excuse for wrapping paper you find everywhere in cheap card shops when you can impress friends, family or loved ones with these expertly designed, aesthetically honed alternatives!
Pictured above is Eda Akaltun‘s fantastic diptych ‘Two Suns’ and ‘The Moon’ for the House of Gold exhibition which will be up until the first week of September. The show features new and original work by Eda, Eleanor Meredith and George Lewin, with exclusive prints and painted works on offer. So don’t miss your chance to see this beautiful show and get your hands on limited edition, exclusive prints and paintings. Read More..

Witness: the artist, in thoughtful repose. Mcbess looks at a copy of Big Mother in our shop. He isn’t really small. The book is called Big Mother for a reason!.. OK!
This photo really serves to give an idea of the hyper-indulgent scale of this book and to show that Mcbess designs his own tattoos. If your familiar with his work then you’ll know that an oversize portfolio printed in a numbered edition of only 2000 will be excellent and won’t last long! Grab it soon or forever hold your peace.
We are very pleased to announce that Fight! 1 by the infinitely talented Jack Teagle is out now and will be hitting the shelves of good comic book stores soon!

Hi all, we’ve finally gotten round to putting the House of Gold exhibition pics online in what has been a rather long month, marred by thefts, perforations in unexpected places and a barrage of work quite unusual for a holiday month like July. But here they are in all their glory.
This amazing exhibition of prints, installation and original paintings is still up for another month, so don’t miss your chance to see it. For more information visit the Butter website.

We have a new exclusive in the shop! These Tattoo covered dolls are made by the very talented Liam Barrett. Hand stitched, hand printed and packed full of amusing detail, my only question is which one am I going to take home: the engagingly beautiful young lady or the wistfully soigne gentleman?..
