The Publish and Be Damned crew are on a mission – to bring the powers of publishing to the people being published. In a world where big bookshop chains have created a sea of ‘One Day’ covers across every tube carriage, this maverick bunch want to empower creatives to go it alone. They’re holding one of their legendarily lo-fi fairs this Saturday 17 March at the ICA in celebration of an author’s right to publish what the hell they like. The revolution starts at 12pm, when the building will be filled with the bookstalls of independent publishers. There are talks and readings throughout the day and at 6pm their signature Rapid Fire Book Launch offers you the chance to see 9 new publications brought to life before your very eyes.
