The wait is finally over! The long-awaited, eagerly-anticipated picturebook by Dr Dominic Walliman and Ben Newman is finally here. Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers of Space is brimful of information about the enormous expanse around our planet: The Universe.

Newman’s stunning illustrations illuminate Dr Walliman’s straightforward explanations and fascinating facts about the planets, the Sun, the Moon, stars, black holes, white holes, telescopes, space stations… and pretty much anything else you’d like to know about space.

As the cold winter nights draw in, we’ll be looking up at the starry sky with Astro Cat by our side, armed with a better understanding of the night sky that moves above us. Why not join us?

You can pre-order your book here.

For those of you who are as eager as us to get started, we’re giving away a free Astro Cat tote bag with the first 300 pre-orders of the book via our online store.

Science and Space is not just for geeks!? Carry your copy of the Professor’s book and your exclusive tote with pride Astro-cats!

London Design Festival: Robert Hunter artist talk
Unknown

This week Shoreditch Design Triangle, part of London Design Week, is hosting its annual celebration of the best of Design in the capital. Artists, studios, shops and showrooms have opened their doors to celebrate London’s rich design heritage. From up-cycled furniture, architecturally designed puddings to the best of contemporary illustration – it’s all going on. Last night we hosted an artists talk by Kyle Platts and tomorrow we’re hosting our second ‘Late’ at Nobrow, this time with graphic novelist Robert Hunter (The New Ghost / Map of Days /, Nobrow magazine 5, 6, 7,).

Earlier this week we printed an exclusive Robert Hunter print ‘Map of Days’ (above), which will debuts tomorrow at the event.  It’s a limited print run of 50, four spot, silk screen-print (320 x 450mm) and will be available to buy for £40.

At this ‘Late’, we’ll hear Robert speak about his work for half an hour or so and have the chance to look through his sketchbooks at close hand. There’ll be refreshments and Robert is happy to sign his books. It’s your chance to hear something from one of our favourite artists and ask him questions about his practice. Nobrow’s Head Book Designer – Mina Bach and one of Nobrow’s founders – Sam Arthur, will also be on hand to answer any questions about our books.

This free ‘Late’ with Robert Hunter is on Thursday 19th September from 18.00 – 21.00 (the talk begins around 6:30) at the Nobrow Shop, 62 Great Eastern Street.
