If you happen to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Vine, you might have noticed that a few changes have been happening over at the shop. Well, it wasn't so much as a few changes as it was one big change. We've said goodbye to our space in Fishtown and hello to a brand new home in Society Hill! Maybe "brand new" isn't the right term. Remember our event at the Physick House? You know, the house that looks like this:
You guessed it! Beginning today, Sept. 1, The Head & The Hand Press is officially operating out of the Physick House and we could not be more excited. The lovely folks over at The Philadelphia Society for the Preservation of Landmarks have welcomed us to use their space for our meetings, workshops, and events.
The move was a difficult decision for us to make — we l-o-v-e Fishtown and are deeply grateful to the community for their support over the past three years in helping us grow. Now, in our new home in Old City, our Press and Writers' Workshop have the opportunity to grow even more (especially in giving us the capacity for larger classes and events). Did we mention this place is also a museum? There are swords and old surgical tools, some pretty rad furniture (just don't touch!) and a beautiful garden to peruse at your leisure. We're only a 10-minute walk away from 5th Street Station. Oh, and there's free parking in the city on Wednesdays.
