While I’m still here, one of my resolutions for International Zine Month was to be more active on We Make Zines (in a Take Care capacity). So if you’re on there, doing that social networking thing, find us and read slight variations of what you can read here!
Just added that stack of new zines we’ve been accumulating since the MCA zine fair. They are:
Underground Fairylands; Well, That Was Weird; Walnuts, Almonds, Nuts; Picture This; Tonight, Everybody in the Streets; How to be Alone #1 and #2; Ella Funt; Bunny Man; Anti-Journey and last but not least Ampersand after Ampersand #4.
EDIT – and Picture This! A Deborah Harry fanzine by Pablo Says! How could I forget that?
Descriptions for all these will be coming soon. Edit – as usual.
Thanks to those folks who’ve come alone to our zine open days. We’ll be organising another round soon, along with another block of screenings for the Dexter Fletcher Feminist Film Club.
Happy International Zine Month!
Tomorrow we’re holding our third open day. Thanks to everyone who’s come along over the past couple of fortnights to check out some zines in our space!
The details for tomorrow’s open day are the same as usual: 12pm – 5pm, at Junior Gazette, Level 1, 91 Railway Pde, Marrickville.
At 5:30 will be the final installment of the first block of screenings for the Dexter Fletcher Feminist Film Club, BORN IN FLAMES.
Hope some of you can stick around for it, it’s gonna be ace. Popcorn and tea provided.
This Sunday (30th June) we’ll be having another open day at our studio, Junior Gazette. Check out two shelves of zines from the Take Care catalogue. No postage, yippee! We’ll be open from 12pm til around 5pm. At 5:30 you’re invited to join us for the second screening of the Dexter Fletcher Feminist Film Club.
Level 1, 91 Railway Pde Marrickville (opposite Sydenham station)
From next weekend we’re going to be having regular open-shop days at our studio space, Junior Gazette, where you can come and buy/browse zines in person!
The dates for the first open days are:
Sunday 16 June, 12 – 5pm
Sunday 30 June, 12 – 5pm
Sunday 14 July, 12 – 5pm
Junior Gazette is located at Level 1, 91 Railway Pde Marrickville (opposite Sydenham station).
At 5:30 on the same days Junior Gazette will be hosting the Dexter Fletcher Feminist Film Club, screening films that deal with gender, sex and patriarchy. So come next Sunday, get some zines then watch Dolly Parton in 9-5, yes!
Subscribe to the Junior Gazette newsletter to keep in the loop.

TAKE CARE PRINT GIVEAWAY:
Some posts ago we mentioned having exciting news which it’s maybe time to reveal: a few months ago we bought a beautiful Adana 8×5″ letterpress. We’ve been working on a few small projects and a couple of weeks ago made this lovely postcard-size print. The text was printed on the Adana by Tim and the picture was drawn and separated into a three layer Gocco print by Emma. The illustration is based on a sketch of Railway Parade with the Marrickville skyline behind it, as viewed from a window at Sydenham station, Sydney. Until the end of May every order over $10 will receive a print for free, after which they’ll be available to buy.
- Sex Industry Apologist #2
- If Destroyed Still True #7
Haven’t added the cover scans or all the info i.e. page counts and weight for OS orders, but people have been asking if we had them so we thought we’d better get em up quick smart!
Also, just a note about the new site. It’s a newer WordPress theme so it looks good on fancy new computers but Emma has just noticed that when you view it on her (older, crappier) computer the framing is different. Ok but different. We’re just concerned that if you have an older and even crappier computer than her you might not be able to see all the menu links on the left hand side. If this is the case please let us know? Email takecarezines(at)gmail.com. Thanks!
Hey look, we changed the look of our website! We’re still fiddling around with it, making it easier to read and stuff. In case you’re worried we’ve gone ultra minimalist, we are gonna add some pictures n stuff eventually. Anyway, just a quick post to say thanks to everyone who came and said hi and bought zines from us at the zine fair in Canberra last Saturday. Special thanks, of course, to Nat and Chiara for organising it! It was way fun.
More soon, including some new zines…
Hello… we have just updated the site with some…NEW ZINES!
Plastic Knife #9/YOU (it’s huge and impressive)
Rhetorical #8 + #9 (they’re small and impressive)
They Want To Socialise You (a close, sociological reading of Sleater-Kinney lyrics)
World Without End (a collage zine with a gocco printed cover. OMG that sounds like such a zine cliche. But it’s good)
Fergus #31 (it’s the new Fergus!!!)
A Walk Around Pendle Hill (does what it says on the box, to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the Pendle Witch Trials)
Also, back in stock we have Nearly Healthy, Tomorrow’s Machine Today #1, The Book Rehousing Project and Raining in my Room (which was never actually out of stock but we just realised that its ‘buy now’ button wasn’t actually linked to paypal – no wonder no one’s been buying it…)
And we have more zines to come, including reprints of Digging and Walk So Differently…
See you at the Canberra Zine Emporium! 23rd of March 2013…
