A one-of-a-kind vintage caravan has cropped up in Nottingham, with funky decorations and a big stack of 'zines for sale from inside its cosy confines.
The 'Caribou Caravan' is the brainchild of Annelise Atkinson, a designer, artist and printer who used the tourer as a travelling boutique from which to sell 'zines - homemade magazines made by a global subculture of artists.
Having bought the caravan from a wheeler dealer in Bournemouth, Annelise brought it all the way back the midlands to house her business, which is currently residing at the Hopkinson's Gallery in Nottingham, Leftlion.co.uk reported.
"The idea of the shop is that it is a travelling boutique, and can bring artists' work to a wider audience and spread the good word of 'zines around the country," she explained.
Determined to take hehr 'zines to the wider public, Annelise will soon take the Caribou - a cross between caravan and boutique - on tour around festivals and markets and anywhere else she sees fit to travel.
The Caribou Caravan is currently on display at Hopkinson's Gallery on Station Street in Nottingham.
