We’re reasonably pleased to report that Disappointments Diary is being stocked at the Polite shop at the Hayward Gallery over Christmas.
It’s the only place the diary will be physically stocked, so if you’re based in London and want to try before you buy, you know where to go.
You should go anyway. Polite is a quietly brilliant company that has spent 12 years working with artists including David Shrigley, Harry Hill, Peter Blake, Magda Archer, Scott King, Factory Records, StudioThomson and plenty others. You have probably seen their greetings cards in various design shops. They also produce limited edition books and postcard sets. The aim is to make art more commercially accessible by producing affordable but desirable objects. And they are always beautifully produced.
Polite is celebrating its 12th birthday and the shop opened at midday today, 12/12/12, so they are obviously good at planning things too.
The diary is still for sale online at disappointmentsdiary.com
