Robin Hood Gardens was an icon of Brutalist architecture in East London. Cafe Royal Books have captured it in a collectable, Limited Edition, 36-page black and white digital photography photo book. The architects, Alison and Peter Smithson designed the estate for social housing and its first residents arrived in 1972. Despite a vigorous campaign from conservationists and locals, its demolition began in 2017. Today a three-storey segment of the original building’s facade has been acquired by the V&A. The zine’s dimensions are 14cm x 20cm.

Café Royal Books is run and founded by Craig Atkinson who publishes limited edition Photobooks coveted by fans and collected by major institutions. Craig’s Zines focus on British documentary photography.

Craig explains ‘My aim is to create a focussed and complete archive of British documentary photography. I publish roughly 70 titles each year with a small edition ‘archive box’ every 100th title. These archive boxes are aimed at major collections, libraries and museums — helping to increase the visibility of the work and making the books publicly accessible for as long as possible. Collectors are wide and varied but include, MoMA NY, Harvard University, Oxford University, Cambridge University, The British Library, The Hyman Collection, Martin Parr Foundation, TATE, V&A / National Art Library’.
