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.

Acts of Natural Magik - by Todd Snap - £15
The long awaited re-print of Todd Snap's seminal work, Acts of Natural Magik. The world renowned Pokégrapher turns away from the craft that shaped his career, instead creating a portrait of Pokémon Island; an island of intrinsic and fragile beauty. 

This edition, with a foreword by Cedric Kinsey - Editor-in-chief of The Vermillion Post - who was documenting Snap at work during this expedition, shares with us his reflections of a talent like none before or since his tragic passing.
