The Permanent Bookshop at mashow, 24-26 September 2008


The Permanent Bookshop is Whippit's travelling companion: a not-for-profit collector, promoter and retailer of artist’s books and other printed items. It is a mobile operation, which tours to alternative venues in the UK, while maintaining a continual shop presence at Brighton’s Permanent Gallery. The shop carries a range of independently published items including limited edition bookworks, badges, journals and zines.

The bookshop has previously been installed at Dartington College of Arts, Phoenix Gallery (Brighton), the University of Brighton and the University of Portsmouth.
