October Publisher of the Month: Uncanny Editions

Uncanny Editions is pleased to invite you to the launch of issue 3 of Uncanny Magazine – Publication as Process, with a talk by Karen Lacroix, Friday 30 September, 7pm.

The aim of this issue is to document and archive an essentially visual account of ‘publication as process’. The idea of making several publications during the illustration/ design process is a way of creating a platform for critical awareness. Not only does it generate space for discussion with other people, but promotes a big variety of solutions and alternatives to the work being produced, thus increasing the possibility of making a more considered and reflected decision through the act of publishing.

Issue 3 of Uncanny Magazine is divided into two sections: 1) a reproduction of a publication produced as part of the image-making process for an illustration project for the English Touring Opera, in its original size and form; 2) a selection of 11 of the 23 publications produced whilst making illustrations for the aforementioned design project.

Publication as Process workshop by Uncanny Editions

Saturday 5 November, 2 – 5pm

Karen Lacroix of Uncanny Editions will host a workshop exploring the illustration/ design process archived in Uncanny Magazine. The workshop will be a platform for experimenting with the medium of publication, reproduction and manipulation as a form of enriching and challenging the illustration process. Inviting illustrators, designers and artists with work in progress, the goal is to positively interfere with the work being produced, while generating a forum for discussion through the act of publishing. At the end of the workshop, each participant is expected to have a publication exploring the work they have been producing.

Uncanny Editions are Publisher of the month at X Marks the Bökship and currently have all their publications on display. More info: http://www.uncannyeditions.com/workshop-publication-as-process/
