Oooo what a super fun day we had at the MCA Zine Fair on Sunday!

Such lovely company with fellow zinesters Yumi Takahashi and Rhys Turner.

Yumi made a beautiful art / collage / drawing / painting zine printed on recycled paper and hand-bound using a traditional Japanese binding technique. And Mr 'whatcha mean whats a zine' Turner made two beautiful zines (printed very professionally on the best paper stock ever), one about a mummy skater and the other was a collection of Holga photographs from his travels in Europe.

Our little 'Quality Row' also included the amazing Lee Tran Lam and her beautiful Paris zine which sold out before lunch time (but if you email her she might make more!) and Sonya Gee and her 'zomg you're sick' care packs.

  13. It looks great! Congratulations on selling out, though I can't imagine how you wouldn't, your zine is both fun to look at and practical to use and have! Will it be available indefinitely on your site, or are they limited?
