Are you coming to the first Nosy Crow illustrator salon?

We recently announced the launch of a brand new programme of events: the Nosy Crow Illustrator Salon. Every month, starting from September, we’ll feature a new artist, with a live interview, audience Q&A, book signing, and, of course, drinks. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to the Salon – and our first event is nearly sold out!

In their coverage, The Bookseller mention Sarah McIntyre’s excellent #PicturesMeanBusiness campaign. We wanted to make this programme very specifically about illustrators – to give illustrators the opportunity to talk seriously about their work to an audience of peers, and to celebrate the amazing, exciting, inspirational contribution that illustrators make to books.

Our first Salon will be taking place – very appropriately – in the intimate surroundings of The Book Club in Shoreditch, on the evening of Monday September 14, and we’re enormously pleased that our guest will be Steven Lenton, illustrator of the fantastic Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam picture books, written by Tracey Corderoy, and author-illustrator of the amazing Princess Daisy and the Dragon (and the Nincompoop Knights).

After an interview with Kate there’ll be a Q&A with the audience, followed by a book signing and drinks.

And you can save money on a signed copy of any of Steven’s books by buying one now with your ticket. £10 will include entry to the salon, PLUS a signed paperback copy of any one of Steven’s picture books (Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam, Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: The Cat Burglar, or Princess Daisy). For £15 you can get TWO signed paperbacks, OR a signed hardback of your choice. You’ll also be able to buy copies of any of Steven’s books on the night itself.

Doors will open at 6.30pm for drinks, and the salon will start at approximately 7.00pm.

*Booking is essential – and tickets are almost gone. If you’d like to attend, you can book your place with form below, or with this link.

We hope to see you there!
