BLACK DOG BOOKS
POP-UP SHOP

Black Rat Projects have announced the opening of London’s most unusual bookshop on 2nd December 2009, in what was formerly Black Rat Press Gallery.

The pop-up antiquarian bookshop is also rumoured to be haunted and is built inside the railway arch gallery. The bookshop will be filled with an unusual selection of books from major and independent book publishers. A large selection of second hand books and artist made fanzines, counter cultural manuals and films will be available. Artwork by Swoon, Grayson Perry, Giles Walker, Matt Small and Lucas Price will also be on display.

Reports have already been received of eerie incidents and strange happenings, with books magically flying off shelves, and lights switching themselves on and off. Halloween may have been and gone but the real ghosts and ghouls work all year round. In addition to this they will be releasing a new edition by Brian Douglas (ELBOW-TOE).
