It is the season for spending, so what better time to dust off your coins and treat yourself to a limited edition print or two? Many Hands Make More Work is the latest show from the ten-strong collective Peepshow. The spirit of the show is daring – with no concurrent theme, each original work on show has been created solely as a celebration of the craft. The wistful collage scenes that Miles Donovan presents are inspired by the 1964 World Fair in New York, using found images to offer a taste of the past, while Chrissie Macdonald’s 3D constructions skulk from cracks in the ceiling above delicate giclée prints by Jenny Bowers. Peepshow’s members will also reveal their working processes by exhibiting the odds and ends used to create their works. The show’s identity, with letter forms made up of several hands, created by Alex Bec, appears as an intricate, two-colour vinyl on the gallery window, available to buy as a limited edition T-shirt, alongside several prints, which muddle together everything from fairground scenes to Ebay-inspired patterns and festive gold leaf. This is the magical, multimedia world of Peepshow, where there is something to satisfy everyone.Many Hands Make More Work runs from 30 November to 24 December at Concrete Hermit, 5a Club Row, London E1
