Modernist Book Social

We are staying open until 9pm this Saturday for an informal evening with Sheffield Modern organisers Our Favourite Places and The Modernist Society to mark the launch of two new books.

The kitchen will be open until 8pm serving delicious middle eastern inspired food and the bar will be open until 9pm selling our great range of northern craft beers, wine and cocktails. To book a table email and let us know how many people and what time the booking is for.

Published by Our Favourite Places, the Sheffield Modern book features photography and essays on the city’s housing, civic buildings and infrastructure. From The Archives: Hyde Park is the sixth and final instalment of a series of beautifully litho printed, limited edition photo books published by The Modernist Society and curated by Dr Richard Brook. Each book in this series by The Modernist Society focuses on post war new towns and social housing – the majority of the images, from the 1960s and 70s, are rarely seen and have never been in print before.

Both books will be on sale on the evening, along with a set of five postcards featuring images from the book From The Archives: Hyde Park. The publishers will be in the bar, if you'd like to chat to them over a drink.
