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.

The lovely Emma Markala has very kindly offered to take a few issues of Village Ghosts, Tomorrow’s Machine Today and Nearly Healthy to TINA with her next weekend, so we will have a small presence at the zine fair after all. She’ll also have copies of her brand new zine Tower of Journal – make sure you check it out, because it’s very fine indeed.
