7x7 Book Launch

The book Launch took place at The Cornerhouse in Manchester. We took around 60 books which we deemed sellable but had to drop the price as a result of the quality! Mike and I both got there a little late due to traffic so missed our thanks off Robert Graham who was heading the presentation! Each writer read a small extract from their story (a few weren't there so others stepped in for them) Whilst the readings were happening the images from the book that matched the story were projected onto the wall, unfortunately there were some pretty heavy technical issues which meant some stories didn't have the visuals. This further created problems for the short video's that the 2nd year illustration students had created, which was a shame.

After each reading R.Graham had a small interview with the attending writers and for some of the images our illustration students were asked for comments. The evening felt relatively successful, we shifted a few books, there was free wine and it was great to put some faces to some of the writers names. A nice way to end a brief and close a project. Many thanks to all involved.
