Myriad events ranging from the rather small to the soul destroyingly enormous are currently taking place in our lives and are preventing us from properly dedicating time to the distro.This is just a quick note to apologise to the folks who are still waiting for their zines (and descriptions for their zines) to appear here, to wish you all a safe and happy Christmas, and to thank every one for supporting Take Care in our first year!
Oh, and while we’re at it, don’t take this to mean that we’ve stopped taking orders for the year – order away! Indeed, if you’re quick you might even be able to get in some zines for Christmas…
Greetings! To celebrate finishing my master’s thesis I have just added 17 new zines to the site! And my did it take a long time. Check it out:
Blue Floral Gusset; Cut & Paste #1; Emergency Poncho; Hugh; I am my Cat’s Keeper #2; Atom Bird #1; Love Like Pop #6; The Portable Self; Outshine the Sun; Metal Hearts; Rena Versus World; Rhetorical; Rink; The Portable Self; Still Looking for Junk; Strange: Seven Times with You; Teen Film Clichés and last but not least the mighty Tower of Journal.
That’s a lot of zines.
Also, June Graveyard and Sing Me to Sleep are back in stock, and meritorious as ever.
Stay tuned for descriptions, we’re still working on them. Apologies to folks who’ve been waiting for us to put their zines up. It’s been a hectic few months, but we’re on top of it now.
And finally, thanks to everyone who said hello, bought or gave us zines at the NGA zine fair, and to Elle and Luke at Sticky for organising it. We took some photos, but being the incorrigible luddites we are we used an actual film camera. As soon as they’re developed we’ll post some here.
That is all for now.
Yours drowning in zines,
FYI, in the spirit of further improving the site, we just updated the ‘About us’ page.
As promised, today we’ve done a lot of work on the catalogue, and site in general.
Most exciting: we now do international orders! If you’re ordering from outside Australia it’s now really easy, just refer to the postage charts when you’ve chosen what zines you want.
The following zines have just been added to the catalogue:
Fergus #23/Love Like Pop #7 split; Fergus #20; Disposable Camera (Slippery Dip); Village Ghosts; Come Back (home to me); Robot Etiquette; Ampersand After Ampersand #3; Tomorrow’s Machine Today #1
And the following have (finally) had their descriptions added:
Department of Forgiving; Chiaroscuro #4; Disposable Camera (Bunny); I Am My Cat’s Keeper; Nearly Healthy
Descriptions still to come:
I am a Camera #14
We’ve also updated the submissions page. Please check it out before you send us zine submissions. Thanks!
Thanks everyone who came along to the Manly Library mini zine fair last Saturday! We like libraries, and librarians who like zines, and everyone else.
Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel our table at This Is Not Art this year, due to uni and work commitments. Bummer. However, that leaves us a lot of time to prepare for the National Gallery of Australia (Canberra) zine fair that Sticky are organising to coincide with an exhibition (featuring zines) called Space Invaders in late October. More details as the date approaches.
We’ve set aside this coming Monday (13/09/10) to add the rapidly expanding pile of new zines and descriptions (see below) to the catalogue. You should look forward to that date, because we’ve been getting some good stuff. Until then,
xE & T
