The publication “Night and Day” is a visual representation of the history of the Manchester Northern Quarter bar and music venue ‘Night and Day’. The publication intends to capture a little snippet of time, by documenting the personal experiences, and memories from the owner and promoter of the venue - Jay Taylor and Jan Oldenburg. The venue began as a Fish and Chip shop, but Jan had the vision for much more. Over time the little chip shop began to see live Jazz bands perform, sometimes the bubbling of the chip fryers would drown out the bands. The once fish and chip shop has now turned into a prestigious, electric and eclectic Manchester music venue. Which has had the likes of The Black Keys, Arctic Monkey, Kasabian and Elbow through its doors.
The publication is predominately illustrated by a mix of paper cuts, collage, and oil pastels. The illustrations are then accompanied by small sections of the interviews. This project was showcased and exhibited back in the Night and Day venue, and is stocked in Magma Manchester and Rare mags, Stockport. The publication is printed on GF-Smith Gmund Bier Pils, and Gmund Bier Weizen (which is the fancy terms for the paper being produced from beer!).
