If you missed this exhibition about Scotland’s forgotten space project by Madeleine Shepherd when I had it on display back in 2009, you can catch it displayed around the walls at Hula Juice Bar at the foot of Victoria Street for the next few weeks!
A companion exhibition book is still available, with a forward by Ken MacLeod. Copies cost £6.99 over the counter , or £7.99 inc. postage & packing within the UK (overseas price on request). You can purchase it either from Transreal, from Hula or from the artist direct.
Google Street View have finally driven down (or maybe up) the top half of Candlemaker Row and I can finally post a Streetview of the shop and update my ‘Location’ page.
Hope you all had a good Christmas, enjoy the New Year when it comes, and I’ll see you again in 2013!
Today marks 15 years since I first opened the doors of Transreal Fiction to the public down at the old shop in Cowgatehead!
Fifteen years! That’s pretty good going I think for an independent specialist bookshop these days.
So of course there was cake!
And thanks to all who have helped make it work; my various suppliers, all my customers and also my partner Madeleine, without whom, etc…
Transreal will be closing for Christmas on Saturday afternoon. Exact time to be decided, depending on the abundance of customers, but sometime between 16.00 & 17.00
Reopen on Wednesday at 11.00 as usual.
I’m planning to close for the same days over New Year.
i.e. late afternoon on Hogmanay, and reopen on the 4th.
