Hoxton Street Monster Supplies, created by We Made This for The Ministry of Stories is story-telling at its very best. The shop is designed to inspire young imaginations, as well as sell products in order to help fund the location’s core activities, which happen at The Ministry of Stories, accessed via a secret entrance, disguised as bookshelves in the shop.
Through this secret door, lies the Ministry itself, where children and young people can spend time in one-on-one sessions with professional writers and other volunteers.
As well as the copy found throughout (written specifically for monsters, of course), each of the shop’s products contributes to the imaginative, storybook world created by the designers (see images below). Adding to the literary theme, for example, each one of a selection of Tinned Fears has its own short story written by authors such as Nick Hornby and Zadie Smith.
