December’s issue (number 27) again contains two books, both of which emerged from our work on the Librarypress project this year:
Hackney Rebel is a gorgeous book of prints created by Hackney artist Dawes Gray. The book was begun at one of the Librarypress Pop Up Publishing workshops held in May 2014 with no prior experience of making books. Dawes’ prints transpose Tony Hancock’s character from his film, The Rebel, from Paris to Hackney in 2012.
The Day the War Stopped… for a Football Match by Islington Library & Heritage Services
The accompanying book is another LibraryPress book resulting from the Masterclass for library professionals held in September. It documents an engagement project with parents and children describing and commemorating the events of the Christmas Day 1914 truce.
