Dark Sand is Alain Vonck's guide through the hyperreal environments and landscapes of an early multi-user domain game, a precursor to the more commonly known MMORPG (online role-playing game). Medieval structures come head-to-head with glitchy bitmap backdrops and interspersed with passages of text that together form a deconstructed narrative world.

VERK - by Íris Erlings - £10
A body of work from Íris Erlings made in 2019. Verk is an Icelandic word with triple meaning; the act of work, the creation from working and composition.
These ten meticulously detailed drawings stem from digital collages from a plethora of natural and classical elements.
Lizard Point '99 - by Jerry O'Driscoll & Luke Overin - £20
A road trip to the heart of pre-millennial, communal fervour; Lizard Point '99 is a textual and photographic exploration of a young man's last few days of being wild. 
By a chance inter-generational encounter, Jerry O'Driscoll's documentary photography of the Total Solar Eclipse event has been un-earthed and curated by Luke Overin - amounting to a glorious, monochromatic ode to illegal raves, fuggy campervans, and a very English kind of communal identity.
Whilst the photographs in the book recount a specific and special time in O’Driscoll’s life, the supporting interview is forward thinking in its messaging and presents a rallying cry to a fragmentary society tip-toeing cautiously towards a post-pandemic future.
