Based in London, Started 2015

Poetic Pastel Press was founded in London in 2015 by painter and interdisciplinary artist Johanna Tagada. Through collaborations, Poetic Pastel Pres conceptualises, designs and produces original and positive contemporary arts and culture publications. These include contents produced by Poetic Pastel’s growing circle of friends and peers. Since 2015, Poetic Pastel Press has been creating limited edition artist publications, available among other at Tate Modern and Tenderbooks. Editions for which each copy is printed locally, as well as assembled entirely by hand for most titles, therefore receiving unique attention. Historical and artisanal paper mills Lana Papier and G.F Smith have supported Poetic Pastel Press for selected projects. In spring 2018, and in collaboration with Timann S. Wendelstein (The Simple Society), Poetic Pastel Press published its first magazine, Journal du Thé - Contemporary Tea Culture.
