TAKE CARE PRINT GIVEAWAY:

Take Care Postcard

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.

 

Totally updated! We’re totally updated!

We finally got the internet working at our new house and had a spare day to sit down and add some things to the catalogue. Descriptions to come (yep, as usual), but check out all this new stuff:

The Church of Hysteria‘s ‘Unmastered’ CD!

New issue (#7) of Plastic Knife zine!

Three (#8, 9 & 10) great issues of Miss Helen’s excellent Fly Away Bird!

March Eighteen, in which Paul and Jessie spend a day at the Marrickville Metro and record the goings on thereof!

If Destroyed Still True, an excellent new zine about travelling in ‘Iraqi Kurdistan’ by Nine of Sex Industry Apologist fame!

I Know Everything, a zine providing documentary evidence of the daring but doomed scheme to remove Luke’s Big Chair from the Sticky Institute!

The first two issues of Virgin, a zine about…well, you can probably guess by the title. Issue#1 is the author’s own story and #2 is a compilation!

And finally, we have Watch Him Bleed #1 back in stock, plus issue #2 & 3. The latter is a split with Licking Stars off Ceilings #15!

Enough with the exclamation marks!?!

So, in other news, we now live a rather inconvenient 2 hours away from old faithful PO Box 4, but we’re not changing our address, as we’ll more than likely be back in the city in 6 months. But it is lovely up here in the Mountains, with all the stars and mist and parrots and the cafe owned by a cult and everything.

In more other news, as we’ve mentioned already, Tim, Vanessa and I are organising a zine fair, called the Snapdragon Zine Fair, which will be at the Red Rattler, 6 Faversham St Marrickville, on the 4th of September. Stalls are all booked out, but if you’d like to send zines for the Absent Zinesters table, or participate in the world’s first zine pinata (zinata), check out snapdragonzinefair.wordpress.com.
