Also, I’ve done a quick tidy up of the mail order. All of the Refugee Art Project zines are now BACK IN STOCK. Probably won’t be long until they sell out again, so get in quick if you’ve been hanging out for them.
We had a fantastique time at Festival of the Photocopier in February, too. Giant thanks to our friends at Sticky for all their efforts. Here’s a shot of some of the zines I picked up at the fair:
Happy new year! Here’s the cover of one of the beautiful zines we just added to the mail order site! It’s The Newport Doll’s new(ish) zine/album. The Newport Dolls are one of our favourite bands, from Melbourne. You should check out their stuff, starting with this.

Hello, join us on the 14th of December for a long over due Take Care zine open day at Junior Gazette! Give the gift of zines this xmas.
Our friends at Jitter Records host the inaugural Jitter Fest next Sunday in Sydney! The dress up theme is punk rock xmas: how can you resist?
Speaking of XMAS: the following weekend – Sunday 14 December – we’ll once again open the doors to our secret headquarters – Junior Gazette – for a zine open day so you can get all the zines you want from the Take Care stable, sans postage. More details to come, stay tuned!
Hello, finally found the time and head-space to do a bit of long overdue shop-site retuning. We have added descriptions to some of the zines that have been languishing, undescribed, for the past month, including the Refugee Art Project Zines, The Good Son, I am a Camera #17, La Petite Mort, The Time You Were in Paris and The Nostalgia Prescription.
The aim is to have all the descriptions updated before adding any more new zines, of which, as aforementioned, we have many. And many and many.
While I’m here, let me tell you that we will be at this zine fair, next weekend!
Organised by the City of Sydney with the aid of the estimable Nicholas Beckett, we hope to see you there!
