This publication compiles four years of research, documentation and artworks that have resulted from FrenchMottershead's international Shops Project, which looks at society through the lens of local shops.
Texts by the artists and local writers from the cities they've visited - including Ljubljana, São Paulo, Salvador, Iasi, Istanbul, Guangzhou and Sheffield - sit alongside contributions from Peter Jackson, Professor of Human Geography at The University of Sheffield, writer and lecturer Emma Cocker, and artist and writer Tim Etchells. Together they show, describe and analyse unique customers' and shop owners' stories in a range of different shopping landscapes, emphasising their differences but also revealing their connections and common grounds.
