Here’s the perfect way to get over your Valentine’s Day hangovers, take a trip on whichever one of London’s tube lines gets you to Kilburn (I need to look it up) and come and look at comics and zines! We’ll be there, Gareth “Black Project” Brookes, those Structo people we mentioned in our Christmas podcast, plus many, many more! At least two people have promised to come and talk to me, but we all know what promises are made of don’t we?
All the details are on this site HERE
Fun starts at 12pm!
Avery Hill Publishing are delighted to announce the release of “Infrastructure”, by illustrator and comic creator Tim Bird (Grey Area, It’s A Bird’s Life), the latest instalment in our AHArts line.
Based in his bold, distinctive line style, married to his fascination with the hidden or ignored treasures of London, Tim has documented elements of the capital’s transport infrastructure, as informed by his own explorations and travels within the M25.
The result is seventeen beautiful illustrations rendered in a distinct and vibrant colour pallet, coupled with Tim’s thoughts and reasons for choosing each subject. Printed in full colour across forty pages in square format, the first print of “Infrastructure” is limited to an edition of 100, each numbered and signed by the artist, and available from the Avery Hill online shop.
To accompany the release of “Infrastructure”, Tim is also making available prints of four of his favourite illustrations from the book, each one limited to ten copies. Giclee printed on 12inx12in Hahnemuhle German Etching 310gsm board, each print will be individually numbered and signed by Tim, and are available from the Avery Hill online shop.

Avery Hill Publishing are delighted to announce that we are working with Simon Moreton (SMOO, Grand Gestures) on a collection of his work spanning the period 2011-2012.
Andy Oliver (Broken Frontier) recently described Simon as “quite simply…one of the most important and intelligent creative voices in current U.K. small press comics.”
The collection will gather together for the very first time work from his minimal, reflective autobiographical ‘zine SMOO and other comics and stories published in hard-to-find anthologies. It will also include a new essay from Simon covering his unique approach to his work through the period.
The collection is scheduled for an April release, with more details coming soon.
