The Tales from the Deep anthology promises to take the reader on a journey through a richly imagined world, brought to life with drawings, papercuts and watercolours.

The collective – a group of over 20 award-winning artists – is exhibiting original artwork and selling the book at a special launch-night in Hackney in London.

The launch event will also feature a pop-up shop featuring an array of prints, cards, 'zines and other artwork.

The launch is in conjunction with the Hackney Pirates, an enterprising charity working to develop the literacy, confidence and perseverance of young people in Hackney, so that they achieve both in school and in the world beyond.

The charity delivers real-world learning projects in an unconventional learning environment, the Ship of Adventures. Inside the hull of a ship, the space is full of hidden decorative delights for guests to explore, providing a weird and wonderful out-of-school learning environment.

The launch night takes place on Thursday, November 20th from 7:30-10PM, at Hackney Pirates Charity, London E8 2NS.
