At an in-person conference, we love it when delegates visit our stand to browse our books, chat to the editors, and take away a stand freebie or catalogue. The 2021 conference is entirely virtual, but we’ve put together 50 physical goodie-bags to send to some lucky UK-based winners.

Simply sign-up to our visual arts mailing list using this form and you’ll be entered into a random draw to win a goodie-bag. You must be a UK resident, as we are unable to ship internationally. When you join our mailing list, you’ll also get access to exclusive discounts and be alerted to extra content like our author blogs, free chapters & book talks. We’re only in touch a few times a year and you can unsubscribe at any time. Entry to the draw closes at 11.59pm (GMT) on Friday 17th April 2021.

What’s in the goodie-bag?
