Hull 1970s - Sean Plunkett - Café Royal Books

"Sean Plunkett (1948) submitted several series from his archive of 1970s work that he made in the UK and overseas. We worked through the sets and decided on which titles would be released, and roughly when. As the books reached proof stage, we received sad news from Sean’s family that he’d died in early 2023.

We’ll be releasing each of the books over the coming months, in Sean’s memory, and with thanks to his family for their help in making them happen."

About Café Royal Books:

"Café Royal Books is the idea of Craig Atkinson, an artist and lecturer. Our first title was published in 2005.

Craig wanted to create a way to make artwork accessible to a wider audience. The solution needed to be small, functional, open to collaboration, affordable, and work independently of galleries. These ideas remain at the heart of what we do.

We’re a small family-run publisher based in England, next to the woodland, dunes, and windswept beaches of the North West coast — we’re always inspired by the vastness, calm and energy of this environment. 

We make weekly publications, focussing on documentary photography linked to Britain and Ireland, printed and bound locally by a small 170 year old printing company. Libraries and museums around the world collect the books, so the work will remain preserved and accessible for many years. Our books don’t need batteries, or screens. We hope they will be used, create conversation and be passed down through family generations."
