Talk, Q&A and Book Signing

Wednesday 27th November 2019
Arnolfini, Bristol
7-9pm
£15.00 full price / £13.00 concessions

Stemming from a record label, Rough Trade Books like a good party and we’re hosting one in Bristol this November!

Craig Oldham (Office of Craig and Rough Trade Books) will be joining us as we mark the launch of his latest project — They Live: A Visual and Cultural Awakening. Paying homage to the counterculture classic, the book is a visual celebration of one of the 80’s most revered cult films and is designed as a perfect replica from the film’s iconic newsstand scene. Politics, art, music, comics, typography, literature, philosophy, and of course, film. They Live touches on topics that are as relevant now as they were then, with leading cultural figures exploring and examining the film’s influence and impact, especially on a creative community that are growing increasingly activist.

Enjoy first hand a design deconstruct of the film and the design references within, and hear how Craig explored the key visual influences to turn the film into a book.

There’s a Q&A and book signing too, plus another inspiring WEDF warm-up act (if you’d like this to be you then get in touch).

We’re arranging a screening of the film nearer the time and inviting people to host and share their own film screening events too – get involved and be part of what is shaping up to be a great event!

Looking forward to seeing you there.
