So far, we are delighted to have the following people involved:
We work collaboratively through print and digital, making work that spans from our own high production value take on the zine aesthetic through to branding, web design, curation and art direction.
Through working within ourselves and our extended network of designers, writers, illustrators and all manner of creative types we are able to create solutions to any design problem.
Our books focus on language, narrative, alternative communication, what you see is not always what you get. We aim to take our books to the far corners of the United Kingdom seeking out unusual and beautiful libraries and reading spots.
Jamie Mills recently graduated from the University of Gloucestershire with a First Class Honours degree in Illustration. Now based in York, his work draws influence from nature, structure and patterns to create narrative illustrations.
Good Grief! is a zine shop in Manchester specialising in art books, comics, prints and tapes and records. All good things garnered direct from the artists from around the globe.
I love typography, photography and topography as well as other things that don't have ography after their name.
Salford Illustration is a platform to explore and debate the activity of illustration in the 21st Century.There is a focus on practitioners living and working in Salford and Manchester but we are keen to maintain a global perspective.
The Manchester Modernist Society
We will meet and gather, mooch, amble, collaborate, make connections, gently protest and point things out where we see fit. We will speculate, agitate, cogitate, publicise, dream and philosophise over afternoon tea, on walks, talks and various outings. All we need is for you to join in, keep us informed of your events and activities across and around the city and create some of our own for your delectation.
Mmopus books is an editorial project from illustrators
and visual artists Maïto Jobbé duval and Melanie Williams.
Through on-going self-published series and editions,
Mmopus attempts to put together a collection of inspiring collectables,
and to develop a body of narratives or sequential works. To some extent,
each publication is the result of an experimentation with visuals and written
words, often through collaboration, which results in an evocative storytelling.
The Mill Press
The Mill Press is an independent publishing and writing house, based in London and Manchester.
We publish a quarterly journal with a purpose to explore subjects of intrigue and ambiguity.
We also create and publish artist books, collections of short stories, photographic prints, poster design and hand made greeting cards using found objects.
Mr.PS products are designed and screenprinted by hand by Megan Price in sunny Manchester.
Megan was led by her passion for print to set up Mr.PS to create an enticing range of merchandise using bright colours and classic graphics based on adventures at home and abroad.
Design inspiration comes from vintage signage, eating and drinking, and the great British seaside; using imagery from photos taken whilst out-and-about and delightful line drawings.
