Offord Road Books is the UK distribution point for multilingual arts zine La Errante, based between London and Madrid.
La Errante is a collaborative project by a group of writers, editors, artists and booksellers who met in Madrid in 2016, having worked across Europe and America in their respective fields. They currently work between Madrid and London.
La Errante began when their shared passion for literature and the visual arts led to a series of events at the Desperate Literature bookshop, Madrid, and quickly developed into the desire to produce a magazine that furthered these interests, all the while drawing on the range of writers and artists met on route.
In the tradition of Surrealist and Situationist magazines as well as contemporary zine culture, La Errante aims to present words and images on an equal footing, just as we aim to present writing and art from different languages and cultures alongside one another without bias or borders.
