NewBridge Books is a shop that is unique to the North East region in providing diverse, original and hard-to-find books, magazines, zines and art writing from independent and radical publishers and artists who self-publish, alongside artworks made by local artists and communities.

It provides a resource and a platform for artists, writers and makers who write, publish and make books, stocked alongside gifts and artworks made by local and national artists, as well as items made through our programme of community and open-access workshops.

Our stock includes books, zines and magazines that explore visual art, photography, politics, environment and sustainability, poetry and more. We source stock through relationships with distributers or independent publishers, and through open submission where artists can sell their work with us.

NewBridge Books is the entry point to NewBridge’s space and studios, and provides space for welcome, conversation, and a place to meet. It acts as an event space and hosts a programme of book launches, talks, poetry readings and reading circles centred around print and publishing, creating space for shared learning and exchange.

Where to find us

We can be found in the foyer of our Shieldfield studios Wednesday – Friday, and every other Saturday, 12 – 5pm.
