A Very Special Year

Nobrow-is-5

2014: The year of commemoration and remembrance. As party politicos in the UK thrash back and forth over who should think what, and how and why, in our efforts to commemorate the beginning of the first World war, Nobrow would like to take the time to remember some other anniversaries in 2014, and let you use your own cognitive powers to navigate your own channels of thought.

So, 2014… 100 years since the start of WW1, 75 years since Steinbeck first published Grapes of Wrath, 20 years since the death of Kurt Cobain, 100 years since the first colour feature film was released in the UK and the centenary since Ernest Shackleton and his crew’s heroic expedition across the Antarctic, 20 years since the first full multi-race vote in South Africa (and Nelson Mandela was elected), and 150 years since overarm bowling was legalised in cricket. Oh, and 5 years since Nobrow opened its doors and set up its office on the quiet streets of East London! (We like to save the best till last).

To celebrate, and really help lift those January blues, we’ll be holding a one-week sale  at our shop on Great Eastern Street. From 13.01.14 to 19.01.14 you can get 20% off all Nobrow and Flying Eye products, including: books, magazines, prints, wrapping paper, posters and toys. We’ve got a good feeling about this year…
