Sartus Resartus LAunch

SARTOR RESARTUS: Coinciding with Het Nieuwe Instituut's opening of the temporary fashion museum we publish an abridged version of Sartor Resartus by Thomas Carlyle. This is our first publication with the imprint: back door books. To celebrate there will be drinks, leisurely readings and beautiful people. 

Tailoring thoughts and wearing metaphors: Sartor Resartus, The Tailor Retailored,was written in the 1830s by Thomas Carlyle. Following the work of Diogenes Teufelsdröckh, a fictional German ‘philosopher of clothes,’ the writing unfolds, interweaves and challenges stylistic genres of social history, parody, political writing and romantic literature. Reading, savoring, we cut through the social fabric of society after the French Revolution (Teufelsdröckh is a sans-culotte), dwell in dandiacal households of pleasure and hike germanesque philosophical mountains and gorges.

Jason R Jimenez & Francesca Lisette at Publication Studio London

Publication Studio London is delighted to host a reading by Oakland based writer Jason R Jimenez, author of The Wolves, and London based poet/performance artist/arts writer Francesca Lisette, whose book Teens was published by Mountain Press in 2012. 

The Wolves is part of The Fellow Travelers series. Inspired by Olympia Press's Traveller's Companion series of the 1950's and 1960's, which published work that had been banned or censored, The Fellow Travelers Series publishes new work that has effectively been "censored" by the market. 

Join us for readings, drinks and freshly made copies of The Wolves after hours at London Centre for Book Arts!
