Tenderbooks is a space for independent artist publishing in London, UK.




In 2020 our bookshop was closed under government restrictions.
For a small business like ours renting in the centre of London, there was a great deal of uncertainty about our future.

We missed seeing our customers day to day, sharing the physicality of books and the social connections of events and happenings.

The 2020solidarity project came just at the right moment for us.
It was simple and powerful.

The beautiful work of artists we admire - Marlene Dumas, Daido Moriyama, Raymond Pettibon, Thao Nguyen Phan and Wolfgang Tillmans was able to sustain us!

With each poster tube we packed we felt more hopeful.
The project connected us too - we met new friends who visited our bookstore and those who ordered from faraway sent us supportive messages.

We have always believed in the freedom and lightness of being a small enterprise.

Thank you Between Bridges, Wolfgang & everyone who supported us by purchasing posters, so that we could feel the warmth of community around us.
