Handmade & Bound Call for Zines

Handmade & Bound Nashville is a celebration of Artists' books & zines that involves demos, a juried show and a day-long festival on October 6, 2012. This is our second year and we are very excited to feature a massive zine exhibition as part of our events. The exhibit will be in the library and will be up through the month of October. Last year, H&B vol. 1, our gallery exhibit was very artists' book centered although we had many zine vendors and distros set up during our festival, including Microcosm and Spit and a Half.  This year we'd like to educate and appreciate zines in all formats and all subjects, from perzines, cookzines, artzines and music zines from all regions (particularly Nashville) to minizines, cut and paste zines and comics. We'd love to display your zine whether it's stapled or tied, screen printed or simply xeroxed in this great exhibit.

If you're interested send your zine by September 15th to Lisa Williams, library director, Watkins College of Art, Design & Film library, 2298 Rosa Parks Blvd. Nashville, TN 37228. We'll ship them back to you or happily add them to our library's collection after the show.

We still have room for vendors (deadline Sept. 15th). Come sell your zines in our bazaar.
