zinesters

Moira Clunie has generously improved our collection with new-to-us zines from New Zealand, Australia, and the UK.

There's a zine fest happening June 16th - September 13 at the Miami Dade Public Library and the opening from 7:00-8:30 on June 16th is promising special performances, a 14-foot inflatable moon, and lots and lots of zines!

Marissa Falco, one of the biggest donors to our zine library, has been interviewed by Craft Land for her crafty creations!

We've got some interesting zines coming in!

Help Papercut Zine Library!

Create a part of Herstory and make zines with Lesbian Herstory Archives on Sunday, June 5 from 12:00-5:00.

Check out For the Birds! It is an NYC-based feminist collective and zine distro - from their "About" section, they are self-described as:

FOR THE BIRDS is a New York City-based feminist collective. We work towards establishing alternative spaces that promote the creative interests of women-identified* community members. For the Birds is a collaborative group of organizers with backgrounds in feminism, social justice work, and various artistic pursuits. Through DIY feminist cultural activism, For The Birds aims to empower and support radical women of action.

(In short, they're just awesome.)

Márcio Sno, Brazilian documentary film maker recently launched a new documentary, "Last Century Zinesters," in January this year. Check it out on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/22319370!

This documentary is aimed at showcasing Brazilian zine-making before the advent of computers and the internet. "Last Century Zinesters" includes interviews with 21 zine creators that worked in the days of typewriters and cut and paste. You can expect to enjoy the '80s and '90s flashbacks that this film provides, and get an in-depth look at the people behind the pages.

Márcio is also recording material for the second chapter of this documentary, possibly to be released at the end of this year. If you would like to be involved, contact Márcio Sno at marciosno@hotmail.com and check out the blog http://marciosno.blogspot.com

I'm excited to see that one of my favorite zinesters/minicomics artists, Katy Weselcouch, is about to publish her first book, a graphic novel The Floundering Time. Among our Zine Collection holdings for Katy are a zine called The Floundering Time, Katy's popular high school zine Jellybean, several Punk Boys titles, and a few others about or based on her study abroad (from Smith College) in Paris.
