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.

Dr Hana Roš and Dr Matteo Farinella’s incomparable Neurocomic hits bookshops today! If your summer holiday has left your senses dulled then get your synapses firing again with this mind-expanding graphic novel. Neurocomic explains the physical and chemical processes that govern perception and introduces you to the pioneering neuroscientists who first delved into the dark recesses of the brain, where memories lurk and behaviour is formed.
We’ll soon have your neurons back on fighting form!

It’s been an exciting (and scorching) couple months since we gathered together a star studded line-up of artists and illustrators in Bethnal Green’s historic York Hall for the 2nd East London Comics and Art Fair. Did you make it into the official ELCAF wrap video? Check it here: http://vimeo.com/69874151
Since ELCAF, we’ve been busy putting the finishing touches to some of our Autumn ’13 and Spring ’14 titles. Keep an eye out for Professor Astrocat’s Frontiers of Space by Dominic Walliman and Ben Newman and Shackleton’s Journey by William Grill under Flying Eye Books and Neurocomic by Dr. Hana Ros and Dr Matteo Farinella and London Deco by Thibaud Herem under Nobrow Press.
But before the Autumn titles hit the shelves, how about something to brighten up your walls! Today we’re releasing the last of the limited edition ELCAF prints, which we printed especially for the festival. We sold most of them on the day, so stocks are very low, but this is your chance to get your hands on the last of the edition. What are you waiting for!? Browse the prints here.

At the end of July this year I was lucky enough to be sent to America by Nobrow. I was invited by Chloe Eudaly at Reading Frenzy to have an exhibition in Portland, tying in with the Stumptown Comics Festival where I’d been invited as a guest.
I was hugely excited to be in America for the first time, and after a particularly long winter in Bristol, sunny Portland seemed like a perfect place to be. It certainly didn’t disappoint and I spent the first few days in a happy, jet-lagged daze, enjoying the warm sunshine and the spring trees of Portland.
