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.

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.

My name is Lydia Love, and I am producing an Experimental Erotic Performance Art Festival in March. This is a huge project of mine, and for two of the events, I want to hire a Zine/Minicomics Artist to create something capturing their experience. One event will be a Panel Discussion on Intimacy & Art on March 16th, and the other is a workshop called Un-Idealizing Sex on March 19th. Both events will be at the WOW Cafe Theater in Manhattan's East Village.
