Last night saw the launch of Simon Phipps’ beautiful and timely new book Concrete Poetry: Post-War Modernist Public Art at the Barbican.
This stunning collection of photographs and book design by Studio Small is already garnering much praise.
Look out for features in the Guardian and Wallpaper.
A wonderful evening last night at Southwark Cathedral for Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall’s talk about The Railway Adventures. An amazing audience of nearly 250 people heard about the authors’ travels around Britain and played Play Your Railway Cards Right, while in quiet moments the dull thunder of trains from London Bridge made themselves heard.
Congratulations Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall for a sell out event last at the London Transport Museum, talking all things Railway Adventures.
And with some wonderful feedback from Twitter.
Fantastic blog on Scenic Rail Britain by Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall, on their top five reasons why you should have your own railway adventures.
Congratulations to Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall, whose book The Railway Adventures: Places, Trains, People and Stations is published today.
In 2017, Vicki and Geoff took a crowdfunded trip to visit all the stations in the UK, and their funny and informative videos of their journey gained a massive fan base on YouTube.
Now, in their book, they help you have your own adventures. Discover the hidden stories that lie behind branch lines, meet the people who fix the engines and put the trains to bed, embark on unknown routes, disembark at unfamiliar stations, explore new places and get to know the communities who keep small stations and remote lines alive.
