London Football Book Market: Stanchion Books X SLG Bookshop

May 27 @ 11:00 am 6:00 pm

Join Stanchion Books and South London Gallery Bookshop for the London Football Book Market, celebrating the wealth of independent football publishing that is transforming how we see and speak about the beautiful game.

An exciting mix of publishers, authors, illustrators and other football brands will be present selling books, magazines, fanzines, photobooks, shirts, prints and other merchandise.

There is a pop-up exhibition curated by Football Beyond Borders, along with book signings with Eve Ainsworth, Venessa Taylor and Ashley Hickson-Lovence.

Calum Jacobs will be in conversation with Christian Adofo to mark the paperback release of Calum Jacobs’ book A New Formation: How Black Footballers Shaped the Modern Game, published by #Merky Books, an award-winning imprint launched in 2018 by Stormzy and Penguin Random House.

South London Louie, the gallery’s café, will be open, and Queer Brewing will be selling beer and other non-alcoholic drinks throughout the day.
