Keen to sub out your lockdown reality for something slightly less grim? Allow me to suggest something old fashioned – a beautiful new book to stimulate your senses!
From their HQ in Carlton North, Books at Manic import and distribute specialist books on architecture, design, art, food and photography from local and international publishers. They’ve been operating in the independent book trade for 30 years (!) and supply lots of your favourite bookshops, museums and galleries with interesting indie texts.
They also have an online store, and are holding a big sale to get us (and the business!) through this lockdown. Why not treat yourself to some books on Georgie O’Keeffe, Cuban Modernism, Japanese packaging or feminist graphic design to combat the dreariness? Or if lockdown 6.0 feels like the time to finally get your craft on, there’s tomes for textile design, hand-printing at home + makers in their spaces. There’s even a fabulous kids’ section and stationery galore (seize the moment for a pen pal?). Plus SO much more!
The 10% discount applies storewide; just add the code LOCKDOWN21 at the checkout. Let’s support local, everyone!
