Amelie Genestine-Charlton and Jessica Jane Charleston founded Shed Press Publications in 2010 on Cheshire Street, London.
Their first publication Next-to-Nothing, a book of 9 poems by David Charleston, was launched in December 2011. Next-to-Nothing is a limited edition of 102, set and printed on their Adana Press. Each page is hand-torn and each book is lovingly hand-bound. The book also contains five original photographs that have been hand-printed in their Dark-Shed.
Shed Press create books that are unique, original and hand-made using their Adana presses, flower presses, Dark-Sheds, Lithographic press, paper and thread. Shed Press strive to build books that are irreplaceably wonderful.
Shed Press created their first publication ‘Next-to-Nothing’ in their kitchen, in their Bow Arts live/work house on Ackroyd drive in Mile End, on an 8 x 5 Adana Press. Amelie found the press in an abandoned hospital, along with some type.
‘Next-to-Nothing’ is a book of 9 poems by David Charleston and 5 hand-printed black and white photographs, developed by Jess in the Dark-Shed.
The photographs were mounted in each of the 102 books.
and lino invitations were printed.
Two book launches were held for ‘Next-to’Nothing’. The first was in December 2011 at David Charleston’s second hand bookshop, The Open Road in Suffolk: www.theopenroadbookshop.wordpress.com and the second, in London, March 2012, at TYPE: www.typeeast.com
After the launch of ‘Next-to-Nothing’, Shed invested in a Flat Bed Adana Press and lots more type, which belonged to Leslie Bell. Les was introduced to us by Jamie Dodds, the incredible artist and founder of Jardine Press: www.jardinepress.co.uk
And we now have a studio with the Bow Arts Trust where all the presses, including the Lithographic Press are housed.
And now we are onto our second book and other wonderful things.
