Postcard Post: The New Renegade (London)

Editor’s Note: Now that we have an actual mailing address (Printeresting, 2832 E. MLK Blvd, Austin, TX 78702), we’re open to snail mail post submissions. You can think of this as an open call. If we get things in the mail, maybe we’ll post them. Depending on quality and quantity, we may start some kind of monthly mailbag series or occasional postcard posts. One of our favorite contributors, Julia V. Hendrickson, is the first to take advantage of our new, analog mode of information gathering…

On October 8th and 9th, Renegade Craft Fair (begun in Chicago in 2003) held its first international fair in East London (the newly hip Shoreditch / Spitalfield’s neighborhood). Amidst throngs of other street fairs and venders, second-hand clothing stores, and a cheery inclination toward plaid, Renegade was tucked away on the second floor of a beautiful old industrial building, the skylit Old Truman Brewery. I was there helping Jenny from Ork Posters (check out the London-based print shop Loligo that is printing Ork in the UK), and after walking around and seeing a predominance of pretty cool printed material, I decided to document all of the neat prints that artists from all over the UK had on display. I got a chance to chat with some really lovely people, and in the spirit of international analog appreciation, Jason Urban and I hatched a plan for the first Printeresting Postcard Post (with a card from Patrick Edgeley).
