The British Library Contemporary British Collection has long supported p's & q’s Press, first acquiring some of Christine Tacq’s small books from the Sleep Walking Through Trees series printed between 1996 and 1998.
Contemporary artists’ books are currently celebrated with a dedicated cabinet in The Treasures Gallery. It is so exciting to see the form find its place amongst some of the most important publications and documents in the world. We are honoured that Meeting Point by Leonie Lachlan and Hatbox by Christine Tacq have been selected to feature in this display.
Adjacent to the Art of The Book is a collection of books illustrating the history of printing. Printess & the ‘p’ is placed at the opposite end of the cabinet from the Diamond Sutra, the first ever printed book.
Sadder news is that that the Oxford Fine Press Book Fair has been postponed. However it will now take place on the 28th and 29th of November 2020, still in the same venue, The Examinations Room on the High Street. In the meantime should you wish to receive any information or prospectuses about any p's & q's Press publications please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
