Coracle Press founders Simon Cutts and Erica Van Horn later teamed up with Maggie Smith to open Workfortheeyetodo, a "book-space" that operated as a bookstore, distribution centre and reference place for the activities exploring the book as a medium. The centre hosted exhibitions, displays, and readings, often exploring the intersection between poetry and visual art.
