Drawings of Minus - Daniel Blumberg (RT#1)


Rough Trade Books 2018 ISBN 9781912722082 Acqn 29737
Pb 14x21cm 32pp 29col ills £7.99

Daniel Blumberg's drawings are mesmerizing, they emanate from a distant cubist past. But he's
also a brilliant musician. Last time I saw him, he was performing wild free music with GUO in
London. Afterwards we all went to the neon bar where Daniel drew a dozen portraits of us on
paper handkerchiefs. He then put the handkerchiefs back into their original place, not further
caring who'd pick them up or what would happen to them.

Blue Springs - Lorena Lohr (RT#3)


Rough Trade Books 2018 ISBN 9781912722105 Acqn 29739
Pb 14x21cm 36pp 29col ills £7.99

For nearly a decade, the British-Canadian photographer Lorena Lohr has been travelling the
American Southwest by bus and train, documenting the fleeting landscapes and the distinct
character of the region's built environment. Taking in everything from motels and bars to parking
lots and patches of waste ground, her photographs capture unexpected and often uncanny
aspects of the commonplace and mundane in the places she visits. Without ironic detachment or
comment, Lohr identifies beauty and individuality in overlooked or neglected spaces that would
otherwise go unnoticed.

All The Poems Contained Within Will Mean Everything To Everyone - Joe Dunthorne
(RT#5)
Rough Trade Books 2018 ISBN 9781912722037 Acqn 29741
Pb 14x21cm 16pp £6.99

This is the story of one man's dream to edit a groundbreaking contemporary poetry anthology, of
how that dream was actually a lot of work, what with reading many bad poems and also
competent ones and handwriting rejection letters and using his wife's family money to pay
postage and production costs, all while trying to bounce his newborn son to sleep. It is the story
of the epiphanies that come with extreme tiredness: that maybe, just maybe, the greatest poetry
book of all is one that contains no poems.

Film Ideas - Babak Ganjei (RT#6)


Rough Trade Books 2018 ISBN 9781912722099 Acqn 29742
Pb 14x21cm 32pp £7.99

After getting a retweet from American comedian Rob Delaney regarding his own fart joke
(something Rob Delaney may well not remember) Babak Ganjei woke up to find a number of film
producers from Los Angeles following him. Sensing an opportunity somewhere, anywhere, over
the next five years Babak used Twitter to pitch film ideas, sadly to no avail. While ill and
housebound Babak started to write them down in analogue form and discovered an audience
waiting for his films.

In Film Ideas, artist Babak Ganjei presents his hallucinatory set of film pitches as both a comic
lampoon of Hollywood tropes and a classic example of outsider-self-expression. Extremely funny
and shot through with Ganjei's singular world-view. Film Ideas brilliantly exposes our thin, absurd
media culture.

To Run Wild In It: A Handbook of Autonomic Tarot - David Keenan & Sophie Hollington
(RT#7)
Rough Trade Books 2018 ISBN 9781912722006 Acqn 29743
Pb 14x21cm 36pp 31col ills £7.99

To Run Wild In It is a book about tarot, an experimental novella, a 'channelled' text and an
extension of ideas first broached in David Keenan's acclaimed debut novel, This Is Memorial
Device. Taking the maxim that the best way to understand the tarot is to create your own, Keenan
has reimagined the deck as the unfolding of parallel stories alive with uncanny oracular detail. In
collaboration with the artist Sophy Hollington, the pair have also created an accompanying deck
that, while still having an umbilical to the card's archaic roots, future-visions it as a glam-punk
portal deep into the Now.

Uninhabited London - Jon Savage (RT#9)


Rough Trade Books 2018 ISBN 9781912722044 Acqn 29745
Pb 14x21cm 28pp 21ills £7.99

In 1977 Savage photographed streets around North Kensington in west London, which, like much
of the inner city, had remained derelict since the area was bombed in the Second World War.
These served as a visual backdrop for collages in the punk fanzine London's Outrage, which he
edited. He said punk music 'seemed to point towards this idea of empty urban space'. The novels
of JG Ballard also inspired him: 'It was this empty, deserted, depressing, kind of dystopian view of
London that seemed to be coming up to the surface.' Savage was a key figure in the punk scene
and is an important authority on the movement.
