the first 100 copies of Up My Street have been signed and numbered by Louise Lockhart..

Up My Street, a concertina book for all ages, is illustrated by Louise Lockhart. It is a celebration of those wonderful High Street shops that are about to disappear. Laundrettes, Children's outfitters, The Hardware Store, all slowly vanishing. The concertina book is a remarkable 139cms long, and 23.5cms in height and features a High Street of 10 different panels of shops, ice-cream van and Telephone Box. It is printed using 'old-fashioned' spot lithography on quality card. On the reverse of the High Street you can see inside each shop, where each owner proudly displays their wares. Influenced by the French Children's books of the 1930s this is a brilliant contemporary twist on Eric Ravilious' 1938 High Street.
