new zines


40 Cats Drinking 40s photo from Ventricular Projects blog. For some reason I thought this was an appropriate Labor Day-themed image. 

This weekend I've added zines I bought or traded for at Pete's Mini Zine Fest and the Librarians and Archivists to Palestine thank you perk zine. 

This weekend is going to be hella ziney, even for a zine librarian:

Friday--8 hours of zine cataloging
Saturday--5 hours of tabling at Pete's Mini Zine Fest
Sunday--3 hours of assembling and packaging the Librarians and Archivists to Palestine thank you perk zine

It's back to cataloging zines from Keight Bergmann's gift. Hello again, 1990s!

Two weeks ago I was on my way to the Zine Librarians unConference in Iowa City, and last week I was on staycation, so it feels like I haven't cataloged a zine in FOREVER. 


This is what I was doing instead--still pretty fun!

Booklyn Artists Alliance is having a 24-Hour Zine Event starting Saturday, July 27th! Described as an "OVERNIGHT ZINE FACTORY / SLUMBER PARTY / MEDIA JAM," this is one party that you don't want to miss!

And now for something completely different, I'm cataloging zines from Keight Bergmann's personal collection, plus a few from through the transom and the internet. 

Also, today is Insurance Awareness Day, apparently. Insert derisive comment on the health insurance industry and US healthcare here. 

I remember from elementary school that June 14th is Flag Day, hence the title of this post.

I'm back to working my way through Keight's enormous donation, but like to mix things up with a few current-day zines I received in the mail (Hi Cindy & Daisy!).

Today, I'm cataloging a bunch of zines that I ordered, a few that were hand-delivered, and when I'm done with them getting back to Keight's delightful donation. 

The Flyaway Zine Mobile is headed to Madison, Wisconsin this weekend! You can browse the Zine Mobile's collection, participate in an open zine-reading event, and take part in Protest Karaoke! More info on the Zine Mobile's website!
