Amelia’s Magazine celebrates 10 years of supporting creativity in the arts with a one off limited edition collectible artists’ book and an exclusive series of A2 limited edition art prints with real gold leaf. Like us, Amelia’s Magazine also launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise £12,000 to cover the costs of printing, paper, payment to artists, packaging and shipping. The artworks and writing for the book have been found through an open brief on their website, allowing artists from all over the world to submit work on the theme of That Which We Do Not Understand. The brief closed on 10th November, there have been nearly 200 submissions.
Amelia’s Magazine has long championed new artists and this book will bring contributors’ work to a large audience. Better still, artists will receive a fair cut of 50% from profits of the fine art prints, which will be made in editions of 10.
The book and prints will be launched with a party and exhibition at Tatty Devine’s shop on Brick Lane in December and thereafter any remaining artworks will be for sale with premier print destination East End Prints. A few copies of the book will be available online and in a few prestigious bookshops, including the Tate, but most will be sold through the Kickstarter campaign.
