The launch and exhibition of the IPP at Blank Projects is closed as of the 1st of October 2011. Thanks to everyone who participated in the show and supported the project.
The temporary library has been moved to a private studio in Woodstock, Cape Town. The collection is viewable by appointment between the 10th and 31st of October (email independentpublishingproject.blogspot.com), after which it will disperse as the publications return to the shelves of their original owners.
