We’re displaying a collection of 3D print blocks and prints in our café bar – all created by the public at our New Incunable Print Shop exhibition during its successful run at Lightbox Studios, LCB Depot in November – to give you a real flavour of the exhibition and the brilliantly original artworks produced.
This participatory exhibition, run in partnership with artist collective Juneau Projects, invited people to make print blocks, and use them to design their own artworks and posters to order.
We’re still taking orders for posters too, so if you’d like a one-off design – for free – send us details of your event via the New Incunable Print Shop facebook page or newincunable.co.uk. It could be a party you’re arranging, a club night you’re going to, or even a gig you loved ‘way back when’. You’ll receive your design by email, ready for you to print out.
The New Incunable Print Shop is part of Affective Digital Histories, a research project exploring how communities change with urban decline and regeneration.
Two new apps – Hidden Stories and Sounds of the Cultural Quarter – have been launched as part of the Affective Digital Histories project, and give a fascinating insight into the history of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter. Find out more at affectivedigitalhistories.org.uk/apps
We’re also publishing Hidden Stories, an illustrated collection of original, award-winning writing inspired by the history of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter and the mills of the North Derbyshire town of Glossop. The book will be launched at a special event on Tuesday 31 March – book your place now.
