Up My Street.

Up My Street.


Up My Street is a concertina book for all ages.

Influenced by the French Children's books of the 1930s this is a brilliant contemporary twist on Eric Ravilious' 1938 High Street. A celebration of those wonderful high street shops that are about to disappear, those classic establishments such as Laundrettes, Children's Outfitters, Ironmongers are all slowly vanishing from our towns.

The concertina book is a remarkable 139 cm's long and features a high street of 10 different panels of shops, an ice-cream van and a red telephone box. It is printed using 'old-fashioned' spot lithography in a printer's co-operative in East London. On the reverse of the high street you can see inside each shop, where each owner proudly displays their wares.
