When asked whether we’d like to run a workshop at the Victoria and Albert Museum as part of London Design Festival there was little else we could do but rush to the kettle for the most sedative cups of tea we had on hand (camomile, if you’re interested). The answer of course was a unanimous roar of YES (slurp of tea) PLEASE (slurp again)! We were thrilled at the opportunity and quickly put our heads together to come up with a workshop befitting of the invitation, and brief – design in books and illustration. For those of you that don’t know, London Design Festival started up in 2003 and in its eleven years in action has grown to become one of the most important annual design festivals in the world. It is made up of over 300 events and exhibitions, involving every aspect of design. It is a thrilling time of year to be in London. So, this Saturday (13th September) come join Nobrow designer Emily Sear in creating your very own zine. Inspired by the annual Nobrow magazine, we’ll be asking you to unleash your imagination through illustration. With the brief in hand you will be asked to consider elements of design with colour (restricted), content (structured) and layout. See you there.
” As Zine by Nobrow” – Saturday 13 September, 4.00-5.30 pm at the Art Studio, Sackler Centre, Victoria and Albert Museum

Fry up those crab cakes and crack open a case of Natty Boh, because Nobrow is heading out to Baltimore Comic-Con!
Going strong on its fourteenth year, Baltimore Comic-Con is known far and wide as one of America’s beloved comic book conventions, and we at Nobrow are very excited to be a part of it. We’ll be there with a whole bunch of our great Nobrow books, hanging out with our comicbookin’ pals from all over the world and rubbing elbows with Chewbacca himself (arguably the greatest Wookie of all time).
It’s all happening from September 5th through the 7th where Nobrow’s US team will be setting up shop at Table 2202. They’ll be proudly showing off all of the latest Nobrow releases as well as some other surprises that you’ll just have to see to believe. Better start making room in those oversized swag bags!

William Grill, the recent winner of the prestigious AOI New Talent Award, is joining the ranks of well seasoned festival goers and jetting off to the fair city of Edinburgh for this year’s International Book Fair. The festival’s programme is absolutely choca with some of the most inspiring authors, illustrators, movers and shakers around, including the likes of Judith Kerr, Phillip Ardagh and Axel Scheffler. We’re delighted to have one of our leading illustrators on board, so if you’ve got the chance to head to Edinburgh this year set your alarm on Tuesday 12th of August and join us at 10.30am to hear Will in conversation with Andrew Blair. And, to add even more oomph to the day, we’ve supplied the festival with the very last 40 copies of first edition Shackleton’s Journey before the reprint is out mid-August. Don’t say we don’t spoil you. You can book here now.

For those of you unlucky enough to have missed out on the third ELCAF this summer (we imagine the reason could only have been an unfortunate bout of shingles that kept you bed-ridden for days), fear not! We’ve managed to put together a tidy little video capturing the very best of what there was to offer this year. Dust off the party hat, watch the vid. and relive the moments that made ELCAF 2014 a momentous occasion. Enjoy!

Dear Friends, family, fans, supporters, well-wishers, curious passers-by, haters, lovers, helpers and all others we may have missed, we wanted to let you know that after 3 1/2 years, we are closing the Nobrow bricks & mortar shop at
62 Great Eastern Street.
Our desire is to focus on our core business, developing and producing the best content in visual publishing. With the increasing growth of our team, we have no choice but to expand the office space and, unfortunately, this is at the expense of the Nobrow Shop.
Nobrow UK will still reside in the same historic premises, but with a significantly larger team – and our books will still be available everywhere that good books are sold. But if you are concerned about getting those rare Nobrow products or back issues, or prints, or objets d’art… don’t worry! Our revamped web shop will be launching in September 2014. It will not only continue to serve the thousands of customers it currently does, but it will also offer exciting ranges of new products, reduced shipping costs, promotions, personal accounts, wish-list functions and much more.
For students and educators who have enjoyed the grand tours of our premises over the years, we will still have our ever productive creative studio and are very happy to organise scheduled visits for groups of ten or more people.
The Nobrow physical retail space will close at 7pm on the 18th July 2014. We will be having a big sale of non-Nobrow books from today until that date.
This has been by no means an easy decision to make as the shop has been a great source of pleasure for us over the years as it has provided a home for exciting exhibitions of new talent, book launches, talks and parties. And it is thanks in large part to all of your custom and support that we are able to enter this thrilling new chapter in the history of Nobrow.
