“The publication captures the spirit of the city with iconic images from around Portsmouth and Southsea and through interviews with some of its artistic and creative entrepreneurs. From established designers to up-and-coming young artists and students, contributors reveal why they love Portsmouth, their favourite spots in the city and even where to get the best breakfast.
The book is designed to showcase the cream of the city’s creative individuals and businesses, many of which have national and international profiles, and to put the city on the map as a place for artists, designers and anyone with creative flair and imagination to develop and flourish.”
You will also be able to see work by many of the featured artists in the Strong Island Exhibition on 15th April at The Round Tower, Old Portsmouth.
