Future Artefacts, the “future of physical media” takes over London this week, running at Shoreditch Studios from October 23 to October 25.

Things you can expect to see: 3D printed music totems, exclusive vinyl pressings, fabrics patterned by sonic algorithms.

Among the long list of participants are AnOther magazine and Baron, Ditto Press, Knives publishing, LuckyMePAN and Super/Collider.

Mushpit Issue #7 launch @ Ditto Press, Jun 25

23 June 2015

Ditto Press is holding the launch of Mushpit Issue #7 at their London location on June 25.

The biannual magazine was born out of, as Mushpit writes, “some intense girl talk sessions” and boredom. The publication’s founders, Charlotte Roberts and Bertie Brandes, fed up with patronising life and fashion advice filling mainstream magazines, decided to create an alternative. “We believe the best way to criticise the unrealistic representation of women in the media,” they write, “is to prove it wrong.”

Creating a magazine (for women?) that they intend “to connect with an audience we believe actually exists”, the magazine is their answer to the modern woman. Distributed by Antenne Books in the UK and internationally and by Marginal Press in Japan, Thursday’s launch will bring good vibes and…free Bacardi Breezers.

Trust Magazine Launch @ Ditto Press, Mar 26

24 March 2015

Ditto Press will be launching the first issue of Trust magazine, titled ‘Flexibility’, at their East London space on March 26.

The publication, which was initially released by Akoya Books back in June 2014, is now being re-released by the publishing and design firm (as well as printing house and bookseller). The theme of the issue is the notion of flexibility, and how it figures in contemporary culture.

Created by Federica Cornelli, who works at Akoya Books as a publisher, Trust combines commissions of new works and essays inspired by the theme of flexibility into a beautiful, holdable book with cover designs by Daniel Swan.
