Cultural Traffic London print publishing and counterculture fair came to Kachette Sunday 8th October. Exhibiters of the fair presented new and vintage publications, fanzines, books, zines, prints and catalogues. The event also included a program of live poetry. Cultural Traffic is driven by the punk ethic of self publishing with some great artists presenting their work at the event.

Freeways fanzine showcased a collection of photographs and art by homeless youth from LA, legendary Sex Pistols cover artist Jamie Reid offered limited prints of his latest work 'God Save the USA' consisting of an American flag banner featuring a picture of Trump with swastikas for eyes; infamous pop saboteurs KLF presented The Jams 2K collection of prints and books commemorating the bands legacy and artistic influence. Other Cultural Traffic highlights included Kim Wan's latest collection of prints and Rama Ghanem's 'Romeo Is A Jerk' greeting cards which aim to raise awareness about sexist cyber-harassment by printing examples of sexist comments sent to women on Tinder and social media on romantic gift cards. There was also a great selection of London photographers exhibiting throughout the day including stunning photographic prints by Carla Borel and Anna Constance.
