Amelia’s Magazine | The ACOFI Book Tour closes at Tatty Devine in Brick Lane

ACOFI Tour Tatty Devine Brick Lane Biscuiteers

Okay, hospital I admit it, more about it’s taken me over three weeks to get around to writing about my final date on the ACOFI Book Tour… but it was all part of my cunning plan to let you all forget about it and then bring it up all over again! Plus, let’s be honest, I had some pretty darn great coverage around the time of the event. For example this beautiful blog by Alia Gargum, who describes how the process for working for me as a contributor to Amelia’s Magazine has helped her to develop as an illustrator. It’s really nice to get this kind of feedback as I work devilishly hard to promote up and coming creatives and it doesn’t exactly earn me much of a living.

A few ACOFI contributors also came along for the night – read lovely blogs by Emma Block (who has just graduated from Middlesex University with a first) and Gareth A Hopkins. Emily of Tatty Devine also did a round up, as did Mistry of Habs, Ickleson and Katie of The Young Creatives. Spoilt really! And they wrote theirs a lot faster than me… In the intervening weeks time just seems to have flown past and as the graduate shows have piled up I’ve let it slip and slip…

Plus I just knew that this blog would become a bit of biscuit porn fest (in a good way). You have been warned.

The last date on my ACOFI Book Tour was held on Tuesday 7th June at the Brick Lane branch of Tatty Devine and it was a homecoming of sorts… mere minutes from my house. I had expected it to be a busy night but I was really quite overwhelmed by the amount of people who turned up: creatives of every age, stage of career and creative discipline, not just illustrators – although it was wonderful to meet so many contributors to Amelia’s Magazine who I speak to regularly by email.

Cassie and Lou had laid out a wonderful Biscuiteers display on the counter by the time of my (as usual) frantic arrival: a delightful carpet of pretty biscuits – tiny iced gem tasters in a rainbow of colours and plenty of half iced biscuits on which guests were invited to pipe their own designs. It took awhile for people to warm to the idea, but once we got going there was no stopping us. Even my boyfriend had a go! (and he wasn’t the only boy who stepped up to the mark)

Biscuiteers biscuits come in yummy vanilla and chocolate flavours but it is the handmade decoration that makes them so special. They have a rotating team of trained icers, and Emma Block (having met them at my event) will be joining them as a freelancer this summer. What a great part time job – where can I sign up?! In the meantime Biscuiteers will be helping out with the Letter Lounge event at Tatty Devine Covent Garden on Wednesday 6th July, a result of meeting up on the ACOFI Book Tour.

Sonja from Tatty Devine welcomes a visitor to the shop.

It was also lovely to meet Richard Watson, who is the maestro behind Juiceology, the new juice brand that has been supporting all ACOFI Book Tour dates. He’d brought along some updated flavours for us to try in slightly bigger bottles of the type preferred by bars. I really couldn’t have hoped for a better sponsor, and it’s nice to know that the ACOFI Book Tour has enabled yet more introductions – Juiceology recently sponsored the Andy Smith solo show at Soma Gallery, which I visited a month ago.

I’ve started to see Juiceology for sale in boutique sandwich shops, so make sure you check them out next time you see them on the shelf – I can’t recommend them highly enough. Richard has some other flavours in the pipeline and I’m looking forward to trying his next flavour soon.

And of course no event would be complete without some samples of Dr. Hauschka products. This time Heather Stanton of Dr.Hauschka was actually able to make it along and join in the fun with her hubby Will. It was lovely to catch up with her.

Once everyone had had ample time to meet, mingle, share work and decorate a Biscuiteers biscuit I invited everyone to gather around and stood with my computer held aloft on my shoulder to give the talk. Having done the spiel five times already I raced through it even faster than I have done in the past – mostly because I was aware that everyone was squished into the shop, all standing, and I felt pretty bad about that. I think everyone enjoyed it though.

Amongst the many Amelia’s Magazine contributors who came along to the event were these lovely illustrators:

Over the past few days a steady trickle of fabulous illustrations from the ACOFI launch night party have been flooding into my inbox… and I’ve been wondering how best to put them all together. In the absence of a better plan I have decided to plow through them alphabetically… So without further ado I present to you the wonderful artwork of Andrea Peterson, viagra also known as Artist Andrea, who is responsible for the cover art of ACOFI. She travelled all the way from Arizona to be with us on the launch day and I think that everyone was absolutely awed by her ability to create beautiful images from just a few dabs of watercolour, live, in front of a huge crowd.

Here’s her images: the lovely Alexandra Haddow who so kindly provided us with Pukka teas and helped out all afternoon. She is rather fittingly illustrated with tea cup in hand. You can read her write up of the event on LDNfashion online.

You’ve already seen this image of Jessica Bumpus from Vogue but why not show it again? I think it’s absolutely beautiful… and I love the way that Andrea has made her a Vogue cover star. Bring back illustrated covers indeed! So elegant and glamourous. You can read Jessica’s wonderful blog about the event on the Vogue Green Style Blog here. Thankyou so much Jessica!

Laurel Harple of i-D by Antonia Parker
Laurel Harple of i-D by Antonia Parker.

Antonia Parker is just delightful. She’s also exceptionally talented and prolific, information pills using bold colours and pattern to achieve wonderfully glossy idiosyncratic images. Ay, generic this is a girl after my own heart.

Laurel Harple (above) was one of the first arrivals at my launch party – I first encountered her when I spoke at Sketchbook Magazine‘s pop up shop last year, approved and she’s now helping out at i-D. We went upstairs to do a video interview on her iphone (aren’t they such clever little beasties?) and you can view the result online at i-D now. I love her Antonia’s orange illustration, which also features at the front of the i-D video interview. Woop woop. She was a really good interviewer and I think I come across okay, even if I do look utterly knackered (I was). Next time I insist on more flattering lighting…

Rebekah Roy is a Canadian stylist who is also represented by Forward PR and she’s a really magical lady. This season she will once again be styling the Prophetik show at London Fashion Week (Prophetik features in ACOFI) and I can’t wait to see what she does. You can read last season’s review here.

Claire and Yasmin of Ballad Of by Antonia Parker.

Ballad Of is a beautiful print and online magazine that supports many of the same illustrators that Amelia’s Magazine features. It was a delight to meet Claire and Yasmin at the launch party. They’ve put together a lovely blog and a little video of the party which shows just how much fun was had during the evening in the Scout Hut at 123 Bethnal Green Road.

Heather Stanton is the stunning PR lady for Dr.Hauschka, who were so incredibly helpful in making sure I had a fabulous collection of delectable facial treats in the goodie bags and did my make up on the day so that I looked glowing and healthy despite minimal sleep. I cannot thank Heather enough for being so wonderfully supportive.

I’ve been talking to Amisha Ghadiali for sometime now – she wears many different hats (and a particularly fetching specimen to my launch party) – she also designs jewellery and writes for Ecouterre as well as her own blog Elegance Rebellion, and you can read her write up here.

Becky Patrickson is responsible for The Style Saint: saving this planet, looking damn sexy while we do it. That’s what I like to hear! Here’s her blog about the book launch.

Laura is Courtney’s right hand woman at Forward PR and was responsible for the amazing action behind the bar throughout most of the night. Love loved her stripy top and braces, not to mention her dance moves…

Ronke Adeyemi runs The Musings of Ondo Lady which is a fabulous blog – she also interviewed me on the night. Unfortunately I think it’s a wee bit noisy but you just might be able to make out what I’m saying against the din in the packed Bunker Cafe!
