If the highlight of your last gallery trip was a visit to the bookshop, you might want to know about this book buying opportunity which circumvents the gallery altogether.

Copeland Book Market is setting up shop in an alley on the Copeland Industrial Park close to Peckham Rye station from Friday through to Sunday. Some 20 publishers and local galleries will be setting out their wares beneath an awning by Oleg Bilenchuk, which will provide shelter or better still shade.

Meanwhile, talks will be held in Son Gallery on Saturday afternoon. And a café will be pitching up in the nearby courtyard. Head to the The Gin and Lamb for Friday night performance by artist Jimmy Merris and Sunday spoken word by Friary Road Editions and The White Review.

Bookworms who might also be nightowls are advised that the café is open till late all weekend, with Top Nice clubnight in residence in the art-friendly Bussey Building on Friday.

Copeland Book Market is open 6pm-9pm Friday and 12pm-6pm Saturday and Sunday see the event page on the Bussey Building website for more details or performances.
