It’s been a busy week of hammering and sawing and taping and printing and cutting and sticking, but we’ve finished and there are more things on the walls downstairs than I think I have ever seen. For one whole month you can now experience the joys of newsprint first hand at our retrospective exhibition, on the ground floor of Southblock, Osborne Street.
We’ve managed to squeeze 47 newspapers into the exhibition, and you can read about all of them in our handy programme here:
There are also permanent, physical copies of these, and some of the papers on display for you to have a flick through at the exhibition, as seen here on the opening night!
Preview night was lots of fun, and thanks to our generous sponsors we were able to feast on Tunnock’s Teacakes and Fyne Ales’ IPAs all night long. Here’s how things looked before we let the raging hoardes in.
And here are some of Glasgow’s finest folk talking about paper and admiring some of our customers’ beautiful designs.
You can also pick up a free copy of the Long Good Read whilst you’re here, and catch up on some of the week’s best long form reporting from the Guardian.
The exhibition is open from 9:00am – 5:00pm every weekday in February. We look forwards to seeing you there.
