Luminous Books with Owl Cave at UNIT/PITT Projects

We are so excited to be working with London-based artist-curated bookshop Luminous Books at Unit/Pitt Projects in Vancouver, opening on February 15. 

Luminous Books will be popping up as a temporary bookshop of second hand fiction, philosophy and cultural curiosities alongside reading lists and visual compositions exploring paths of reading and the creative intersections between disciplines.
Owl Cave will be sending extracts from our library of feminist literature and a selection of contemporary artists’ publications. The curated collection of books at Unit/Pitt will shift and alter with each sale, reorganizing itself to accommodate losses and gains, breathing.

A new publication by Luminous Books, ’TO RIDDLE, TO READ‘, will launch late March taking the form of a cumulative reading list around Vancouver’s artist-run culture with contributions from spaces and projects engaged in alternative activity around the book form and independent art publishing.

Opening Friday, February 15 2013, 8 pm – runs until March 30 at Unit/Pitt Projects, 15 E Pender St., Vancouver. Public hours, Wednesday – Saturday, noon – 5pm.
