Tenderbooks is a space for independent artist publications and unique contemporary art books. Publication launches, reading and performances take place weekly.

The shop also stages monthly exhibitions dedicated to the book practice of a featured artist or press. These displays are often conceived around the idea of the ‘ex libris’ with a view to showcasing personal collections, rare material and ephemera, some of which may be offered for sale. Tenderbooks frequently commissions publications and limited editions, collaborating with partner Tenderpixel to support artist projects and research.
