'Pylon Press is a support structure for the transmission of creative energy'. At Pylon Press we help illustration students by giving them a first chance to see their work in print through the cult of indy publishing.
Established practitioners and academics work alongside students on collaborative publications and individuals get to explore themes and storytelling through our solo publications.

Pylon Press is a research project, developed by Philip Trenerry and Mel Brown to enrich the HE Illustration programme at Plymouth College of Art.

Through competitions, projects, events and distribution we aim to give students, alumni and academics new opportunities to produce illustration work.

The additional involvement of practitioners from the illustration and other creative industries is helping us to inspire the aspirations of our students.
