The Dulwich Diverter Kickstarter Campaign

Show some support for The Dulwich Diverter  – a free local community newspaper by The Peckham Peculiar and written by South-East London residents.

The emphasis will be on real reporting and unique stories that are all about the local area and its people, rather than generic content driven by press releases.

The publication will be colourful, bright, lively, well photographed and designed, energetic and well researched with original and creative content.

The front page has been specially designed by award-winning artist and graphic designer Jake Tilson, who is based in south-east London. His work has been exhibited around the world in hugely renowned venues including the Tate, the Museum of Modern Art and Centre Georges Pompidou.

The Peckham Peculiar launches!

Peckham Peculiar – Issue 1

We attended the Peckham Peculiar launch party for the newest hyperlocal periodical for Peckham. We were glad to have helped Kickstart the newspaper in a small way, along with our co-business, Captured on the Rye. The first issue has a peep inside Peckham’s famous hair salons of Rye Lane, a piece about the legendary Peckham Liberal Club, thoughts on the redevelopment of Peckham Rye station and a recipe for sticky, spicy chicken that I absolutely must try out! You can read the edition online.

You can pick up your copy from various stockists around SE15 and SE22 including Shop Lois, Roullier White and ToastED.

There was also a great piece on BBC1’s Breakfast Show about the launch of the magazine, also featuring Lou from Captured on the Rye with his Made in Peckham designs!
