New book from M.I. Adrian now available – ‘The Printer’s Devil and other stories’

theprintersdevil book cover

As the print works closes at a big regional newspaper, a group of journalists gather in the local pub to speed colleagues on their way. Each one has a story to tell.

With a lifetime of reporting on the local community and beyond, this determined and largely-cynical group of men and women tell stories which cover a range of activities from the definitely criminal to the downright fantastical.

These stories are embedded in ‘The Printer’s Devil,’ told by Joel, newly-minted reporter, who, on a three-month placement at the paper, is determined to make his mark.

‘The Printer’s Devil,’ although entirely a work of fiction, was inspired by the demolition of the print works at the Bristol Evening Post building and by the work of local artists on that subject.

M.I. Adrian’s new book ‘The Printer’s Devil and other stories’ is now available for purchase:

Hard copies, spiral-bound, with original screen-printed artwork from thesilentroom, can be purchased from the Bristol Creatives Pop-Up Department store in Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU up until Saturday 24th December 2011.

These will soon also be available from our website.

Book: £15
Screen-print Of Artwork: £25
Book + Screen-Print: £30

Kindle edition is available from for £0.99.
