What a year 2015 has been. We have released four new volumes of Elbow Room, hosted Elbow Room Live in London, attended book fairs across the country, taken part in exhibitions, had work selected for international collections, released the third and final UEA Special Edition, run the first Elbow Room Prize and successfully crowd funded over £2000 on Kickstarter. Every year since Elbow Room Volume One was released has been one of adventure and growth but this year has been particularly special.
The success of our crowd funding campaign, the support and faith our community has shown in us is incredible. It has truly blown us away and we couldn’t be more thankful. We also couldn’t be more excited. For the first time ever we have a chance to invest in As Yet Untitled, to buy the materials and equipment we need to build a strong foundation from which we can grow and move forward. 2016 is going to be a year of change, of creativity, of new books, new ideas and new stories all made possible by your support. We can’t wait to get started.
We are planning more Elbow Room, more live events, another Elbow Room Prize, new artists’ books, more book fairs, more exhibitions, more paper, more ink, more thread... basically just more; more of the old and more of the new. It’s going to be a challenge but it is also going to be so much fun.
We promise to keep you updated as the journey continues next year, but until then Happy Holidays (and perhaps consider sharing your work with us at Elbow Room- submissions are open until Jan 31st)
