Car Park Shopper is modern Britain in all its glory as seen through the eyes of south east London-based artist Luke Overin. A compilation of graphics stolen from the back of lorries, glimpses through shop windows and grainy images of corner shop CCTV screens, no book better captures the unintentionally humorous world of decaying high-streets and boot-fair culture.

MANIC SHOOTER - by Peuple Caché - £12
Manic Shooter reimagines the aesthetics of early shoot 'em up video games. In-game screenshots of brightly coloured projectiles and spaceships, serve as raw material for the visual interpretation of Alain Vonck. This series of lively and evocative abstractions is complemented by the words of Guillaume Ladvie. Translated from French into Japanese and English, the poem deals with the dark and universal themes of war. This dialogue between words and images draws an ambiguous portrait of violence, lost between shadow and light.
Spectrum Test - by Panayiotis Terzis - £8

Spectrum Test signalled a new direction for the NYC-based artist when it was first published in 2012; forms melt and bleed into each other in ultra-saturated washes of colour. Vibrant hues rendered in gouache clash and combine, calibrating the eye. Terzis draws imagery from the ancient past, far future, and space age present to collapse all eras within a maelstrom of vibrating colour.
