Repeater Books is one of independent publishing’s go-to presses for accessible but intellectually rigorous cultural writing. Their titles range from literary fiction to non-fiction about interesting and incendiary topics across the arts and politics. At IPM, Repeater will bring a range of their titles, some of our favourites being their music-leaning titles like Kit Macintosh’s Neon Screams and Joe Molloy’s Acid Detroit.
Disco Pogo is a modern electronic music magazine from the minds that brought you landmark 90s club mag Jockey Slut. Featuring long-form artist interviews, extended editorials and luscious A4 photography, it’s a more mature, heavyweight Bi-annual electronic music publication that still carries some of its forerunner’s snarky spirit.
Deep Tempo, one of if not the most prominent podcasts in dubstep, has turned its attention to print and the result is 140 zine. Dedicated photography from across past and present dubstep, shot on 35mm film, 140 is a publication for the true 140 heads. They’ll have all their editions available for sale, and keep an ear out for Deep Tempo’s DJ set as well.
My First Book of Drum & Bass
The only younger readers picture book dedicated to high-tempos and rumbling low-end, My First Book of Drum & Bass is an entry point to the music, characters and stories that make Jungle Drum & Bass culture what it is! My first Book of Drum and Bass author Charlie Wright will be on hand at IPM to chat about the book, as well as signing and selling copies.
Museum of Youth Culture
What started as a temporary pop-up project has become a London institution of music-adjacent and youth culture. While the Museum of Youth Culture has had multiple different brick-and-mortar homes, the project’s mantra is to create dedicated spaces for culture created by young people over the last 100 years. For Independent Print Market, the MOYC will bring an array of books and ephemera from recent exhibitions they have showcased, including Grown Up in Britain:100 Years of Teenage Kicks and Normski’s zine Darker Shades of White. The MOYC will also bring a scanner, inviting you to scan in that snapshot that defines your youth culture for the museum archives.

Four Corners Books
A press dedicated to the more esoteric niches of art history, Four Corners Books publishes art books that explore the visual arts and where they overlap with unusual pop culture. From photo wallets to Cold War memorabilia and DJ Food’s compendium of projection disc art, Four Corners Books is a press committed to sharing creative design in the strangest places. More than just art books, Four Corners Books delves into the stories behind the most unassuming and often surprising creativity. At IPM, they will have a range of their art books, including a selection from their Irregulars series focusing on visual culture in Britain.
A firmly artist-run community project, Rendezvous Projects was set up to explore the social histories of places and communities by establishing narratives that may have been forgotten, underrepresented or ignored. Most of Rendezvous Projects work to date has focused on East London Boroughs like (remove canning town as it’s in Newham) Newham and Waltham Forest and often veers into rave culture. Their recent Sweet Harmony exhibition delves into and examines pirate radio history in the east end, and at IPM will be selling a selection of limited edition prints, posters and booklets, including Crate Digging: The Influence of De Underground Records, a pamphlet, interview series and podcast about the legendary east end wax haunt and their newest project All Roads Lead to Bentley’s.
