5 new zines just added to the catalogue…

Les Liaisons Dangereuses, which contains a series of text messages that document a love affair;

In the Flesh, ‘a story in which the central figure is my anus. My lovely anus, both anatomical and sexual…’;

Pieces #6, a zine from the States about commuting. It’s nice and long and wordy, which would actually make it very good company on a long commute;

Here. In My Head. #9, a perzine from the UK about feminism, technology, theology and more;

For Strentgh & Valour, a Melbourne zine full of photocopied diary entry style writing about zines, art, Survivor etc! (22/9/11 Edit: ‘Strength’ changed to ‘Strentgh’, with apologies to the zine’s author for missing the Mekonsesque joke in their title.)

Coming soon we have a stack of zines left over from the Snapdragon Zine Fair Absent Zinesters Table…

Libraries!

First Library

Those who love libraries as much as we do will be pleased to know that there’s a mini-zine fair at Manly Library this Saturday in conjunction with the Manly Arts Festival. There will also be a free zine workshop with Vanessa Berry. Call the library for details. We’ll be there too!

Second Library

If that wasn’t enough, Black Rose have kindly agreed to share a selection of their amazing zine library with those coming to the Snapdragon Zine Fair. I wonder how many folks who make zines are already aware of Black Rose? Well, if you don’t know, the various incarnations of the Black Rose collective have been operating a volunteer run library for over 25 years. During this time they have  amassed what is probably one of Australia’s largest accessible  zine collections. If you have an interest in zines and want to learn more about them you should come and say hello on Sunday.
