The London Radical Bookfair – in Pictures

The London Radical Bookfair took place on Saturday. It was a wonderful inaugural event filled with booksellers, publishers and eager buyers; Redemption ales and delicious veggie food. The Bread and Roses Award for Radical Publishing was handed out on stage in the afternoon, drawing things to a close.

Pluto emerged much lighter in stock – especially in our three short-listed books. If you missed the event, don’t worry – it was a great success, so there’ll probably be another one next year! For those of you blighted by our instant gratification, YouTube generation culture, we’ve got some pictures that you can browse and immerse yourself in. Just close your eyes, imagine the smell of books, beer and (veggie) burgers…
