The Wick Curiosity Book Shop has been especially assembled for the Hackney Wick Festival and had its second outing at the Hackney WickED Festival alongside the Corracle Regatta.

The Wick Curiosity Book Shop brings together publications, books, posters, postcards, fanzines ... with a special focus on Hackney Wick. Part display part book shop, it allows visitors to browse the growing archive and purchase those items which we had available for sale. The structure housing the book shop on the back of the WOW milk float was developed as a first micro prototype using reclaimed material harvested in Hackney Wick and assembled collectively at a public hands on workshop in Queens Yard.

The local collection is on display at the public works studio in Hackney Wick and can be viewed by appointment.

Hackney WickED is an annual festival promoting the local culture of Hackney Wick. it is dedicated to providing a platform for artists to showcase their work alongside established and international names.

The Wick Curiosity Book Shop was supported by the Hackney Wick Festival.
The Book collection will be uploaded to the Wick Curiosity Shop website shortly
