If you're wondering what this photo has to do with zines, zines have anarchopunk politics behind them, lots are about the environment, and climate change effects us all, regardless. 

Between vacation, conference attendance, picking up a zine collection donation (Thank you, ♥Cheryl Tapper♥!!!) and Labor Day, I cataloged zines only once in August and in September so far. I've been missing my beloveds, so hooray!

August 18th is National Mail Order Catalog Day! In honor of mail order catalogs honored place in 1990s and early 2000s zinedom, here's a Pander Zine Distro catalog cover:

I spent a few hours on Saturday tabling at Pete's Mini Zine Fest, so I'm doing just half a day of zine cataloging. Sad, but true!

Today's International Zine Month activity is "Make some envelopes or postcards for postal week," hence this photo from the Zines Maps, and Letters workshop Marissa Falco gave for the Barnard Zine Club. 

A lot of my zine librarian and zine making homies are at the American Librarian Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas this weekend. I am not, partially because, Ugh: Las Vegas, but I am jealous that they all get to hang out together at the Zine Pavilion

Here's another NYC Feminist Zine Fest photo by Ayelet Pearl, since I'm still cataloging the zines I bought there. This is co-founder and co-organizer Elvis's table. Like some of our favorite people, they might be a little potty-mouthed in their challenge of the patriarchy!

Since a lot of the zines cataloged today are from the Feminist Zine Fest again, here's a photo of the other organizers and me.

Since the zines added this week were acquired at the Feminist Zine Fest at Barnard, here's a photo of the Barnard Zine Club's FZF table:

Today in obscure holidays: Pick Strawberries Day!


A result of a an image search on < punk rock strawberry shortcake >, this photo is of One-Eyed Doll, a band "Described as Strawberry Shortcake meets Gwar and Valentine's Day meets Halloween with the visual impact of Japanese Anime."
