As its the RCA Secret Postcard sale tomorrow, I wonder how many people are hoping to find themselves a bargain buy, maybe a Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry or Anish Kapoor for only forty-five pounds. Well whether I brave the crowds tomorrow morning and head down to Kensington Gore is yet to be decided but here are my favourites.

So as I posted already about bill stickers, here is some more examples of the very great sticker promotion! It spread all around Paris, from Saint Germain, Pigalle right through to the Palais de Tokyo, while looking up at the Eiffel Tower. What has happened now is it seems to be spreading across the water right into London. A very big thank you to a certain individual who posted on a post box - perfect! Keep looking around London, they are going to start appearing more and more.

So I have now returned from my trip to Paris, Paris Photo, Off Print and Nofound which really was an excellent trip, filled with much laughter, great work, wine and fantastic company. I will post later about what went on in Paris, which exhibitions I saw, the overall debrief of the trip. but first a lovely little image that shows off the flyers that my designers made for the pre-sale of my publication, coming in early 2012.
I collected the package from my designers Kummer & Herrman on Friday afternoon at Le Bal, a lovely little exhibition space with an incredible cafe serving some amazing food. I was very excited to see what they were like and they are truly fantastic! You can peal off the middle section of the flyer, so it was only right to promote the book in the correct fashion, spreading the word around Paris with the stickers! A special thank you to everyone who participated, very funny indeed! The image above is a little taster of what, where and how they look.

As it is getting very close to Paris Photo now and I am arriving in Paris on Thursday I felt you should see what I have been planning! My wonderful designers Kummer & Herrman have been very busy producing my pre-order publication leaflets. I will be in Paris Photo on Friday day and Off Print pretty much the rest of the time, with a little trip to the Nofound Photo Fair.
Please get in touch if you would like a pre-order card as they really are beautiful and really start to show you what the concept of the book is going to be. I will also have the Book Dummy which you might even get a glimpse of too. See you in Paris!
As the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize opens tomorrow night, I thought it only right to draw your attention to my good friends work, Tina Hillier, whose portrait of me has been selected for the exhibition, very exciting! This portrait was taken in early January 2011 in Turku, Finland. To see more of Tina's work see here: http://www.tinahillier.com/
