Lotte Inch Gallery is returning this summer with an exciting pop-up exhibition at Janette Ray Rare Books. Showcasing a selected body of paintings, prints, ceramics and more, this collection of works has York and the North at its heart. Featuring local and prevalent artists (such as Mark Hearld and Tom Wood) alongside regional greats from recent decades (Marie Walker Last, David Lloyd Jones), this exhibition celebrates the wide array of creative talent hailing from the North.
Artists in the show include; Amy Dennis, Mark Hearld, Nicky Hirst, Kelly Jayne, David Lloyd-Jones, Marie Walker-Last, Robert H. Lee, Isabella Maclure, Geoff Morten, Malcolm Whittaker, Tom Wood and more…
A new range of Easter Cards arrived this week and will be on sale for those planning their Easter festivities. Please come and take a look. The shop is overflowing with recent purchases too ranging across all our visual art subjects from architecture to art. We exhibited at the York Ceramics Fair recently and still have some great titles we acquired for that very special event. We have a range of books on how to make ceramics as well as titles on the major figures in Ceramic design including Lucie Rie, Bernard Leach and their contemporaries. If you want to visit us outside our usual hours, please give us a call and we will make our best efforts to open up for you.
We are closed, except by appointment between Christmas and New Year but re-open on 4th January 2023. Hoping all of you are having a great break. If you have been given a diary for Christmas, note also that it is the York One Day Book Fair on 14th January, 2023. 10.30am-4.30pm at the Knavesmire Suite, York Racecourse, York.

We have issued paper catalogue, List 113, this month,themed loosely on design books published during the decades of the 1930s to 1970s which we consider to have been influential in their day.

Looking forward to the day when the bookshop opening hours can be regular ones and we can welcome all our returning customers.
Although the bookshop remains closed for walk in business we are actively trading from this website and also planning to have a window exhibition in collaboration with Lotte Inch Gallery from 28th November featuring the work of artist Ed Kluz, who draws upon architecture, and in this case solitary buildings in the landscape as his theme. Images can be seen in our shop window. The remainder of the show is in the window, two buildings along at 14 Bootham, which is home to Lotte’s gallery. Take a look. http://www.lotteinch.co.uk/exhibitions
