Publication: RCA students put their great minds together to create a historical book

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Do you ever get that feeling when you go to the RCA that you can actually hear the collective humming of people’s brains? The fruits of that brain juice (if you will) is here; the lovechild publication of the 2013 graduating students of MA Critical Writing in Art & Design. After Butler’s Wharf is a fascinating collection of essays, photographs and extensive research and critical writing about a landmark London building near Tower Bridge.

Although the building is currently predominantly flats and upmarket shops and cafes, the history behind it suggests a far different story, and one that gets more intriguing the further you delve into the book. The fact that it is very, very well designed is merely a bonus. A must-read for the brains and bookshelves of anyone who wants to appear clever and arty.

There are five copies of After Butler’s Wharf that are being given away for free! Just email afterbutlerswharf@gmail.com with your postal address! (UK only)
