Freed Book submssions CLOSED

Thanks to the 52 artists/authors who have either reserved a page or already sent in their artwork to the Freed Book project.
Sorry if you didnt get there in time.
Drop me a line with your email address if you're not on our contacts list or have a good idea for a 'one-page' story and want to be top of the list if we do this again.

As work comes in I'll start adding it to a catalogue/slideshow in the next few weeks.

Freed Book open for submissions!

We're off to a good start with the Freed Book project, submissions are steadily coming in. If you'd like to get involved then send in a 'one-page' story to

Make sure your image (or text or a mix) is -
A5 in size,
300dpi in resolution
either a jpeg or pdf,
Black & White (inc. Grey/half tones)

If you have a brilliant idea for a story/narrative but are worried that we'll close submissions before you've had the chance to finish.....then...drop me an email and I'll reserve you a page.

On the 24th November we'll be releasing copies of the Freed Book into the Books For London network. Its a great network of bookswapping libraries and always on the look out for volunteers, so why not get in touch with them. Follow the link (right). Their support of this project has been a tremendous boon.

"FreedBook is exactly in line with why I started the Books for London campaign, bringing people all across London new things to read and giving budding authors and artists a chance to showcase their wares".
Chris Gilson (Books For London)

Artist's Birds on E17 Streets

Thanks to everyone who came out and posted magnets around Walthamstow on Saturday (8th Sept). We had a great day visiting the venues along the E17 Art Trail, having an impromptu picnic and of course releasing 100 magnetic birds into the wilds.

If you've just picked up a magnet and want to find out more about the artist, then visit the artist page and it'll will link you their website.

There's a slideshow of some of the magnet placement to the right. More to follow from Stuart and Dean too.

A big thank you to Dean Reddick for his seamless organisation and to all the 50 Artists who produced a memorable and varied exhibition.

We'll be posting details of our next show in about a fortnights time.

Hidebird Magnets Fly the coop

Here they all are. 100 'birds' on the side of E17's Hidebird in Barrett Road, Walthamstow.
But they'll be flying the coop this Saturday, 8th September at 11am.

Dean has printed them on small magnets (5x7cm) and we'll be placing them on metallic surfaces in the centre of Walthamstow.
There's a slight change of plan. We'll be meeting at the Big Screen, which is between Walthamstow Central Station and the Library at 11am.

Dean and many other artists will be placing 'Art on trees' for hungry collectors at 10am. So join in with this too if you fancy.
Eventually we'll be making our way back to the Hidebird at 28 Barrett Road for a cup of tea.

If you need to get in touch with me - 07792 027716
See you there,
