Over the weekend of the 24th – 26th June, Peckham will be the place to be for book and magazine lovers. Hosted by Son Gallery, there will be something for everyone at the Copeland Book Market – appealing to the architect, designer, critic, artist, curator and all-round creative enthusiast in you. If that isn’t enough, there will be talks and events taking place throughout the day in the gallery, a pop-up café and bar in the yard, and music, performances and club nights in the Bussey Building to end each day. So much to keep you busy, you needn’t leave the site for the entire weekend.
The opening night coincides with the SLAM LAST Fridays, so the rest of Peckham will be buzzing with activity. The evening will finish off with the popular TOP NICE club night.
Even if it’s raining there’s no excuse to bail as architect Oleg Bilenchuk has designed and built a series of awnings to cover the passageway, to make sure the publishers don’t have to pack up shop the minute the weather turns on them.
There’s a really fantastic list of artists and publishers taking part, but to name a few to look out for: Preston is my Paris, BLOCK, Bedford Press, Arcadia Missa, Jimmy Merris: Downturn Press, and …. Art Licks (sorry, shameful self-promotion there).
So if it’s for the books, magazine, events, coffee, music, dancing or just general curiosity, the Copeland Book Market is a not to miss.
