"Printers Paradise" was the informal name of the dense cluster of printers and related industry spread around the Wick and along the Carpenters Road. With the changes sweeping through the area and through the print industry only a few outposts of Printers Paradise remain. The walk introduced participants to the former glory, to printers and print workshops still active in Hackney Wick. The walk, held on March 2011 as part of the Wick Curiosity Shop programme (Section "The Way We Walk"), contributed to an on-going project by Gemma Drake documenting the changing print industry in and around Hackney Wick.
