Chirp chirp! In a long-awaited merger the Artypeeps network is now part of The Curved House, a creative agency working primarily for publishers and authors. Please visit www.thecurvedhouse.com to find out more.
This blog will shortly migrate to The Curved House but we will continue to have our twice-yearly Artypeeps drinks nights and will keep the network active through Facebook.
Thank you to all of the Artypeeps crew who have supported the various endeavors and made our network the special little community that it is.
Ahoy peeps! Those of you in the Artypeeps Facebook network will know that we have almost 900 Facebook friends all around the world. We want to get our network up into the thousands so we’ve now started a fan page. We’ll be profiling some of our favourite designers, illustrators, artists and other wonderful creatives on this new page. We’ll also be handpicking fans of our page to profile their work so we need to see lots of talented peeps liking the page!
Visit the new Artypeeps Fan Page, click ‘LIKE’ and then spread the word to all your friends. Thanks!

There are also a couple of events on digital media and art publishing including a 4pm session on Saturday called Turning the virtual page: The digital future of art publishing A few of the Artypeeps crew will be there on the Friday and Saturday so come along and enjoy the book for reasons other than words!

Pathways: Journeys along Britain’s history byways, from pilgrimage routes to smuggler’s trails is another meaty project for Guardian Books. Artypeeps managed the production and proofreading from manuscript to final files while the design and layout was done by Two Associates and the excellent maps are by Darren Bennett. This was a big book with full colour integrated images throughout and various components in the text design that needed careful attention. Lots of hard work but a really fabulous job done by everyone involved (not least the authors!). You can get hold of it from Guardian Books.
