July 27, 2013: the Cataloging of the Zines

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!

From the Publisher

Autumn: a Celebration by Allie, Caro & Adina, 2012.
One essay in this Barnard student comp zine references an admitted student weekend poetry class argument that the seasons are not a winter-summer binary with spring and fall merely as transitional months. Barnard discourse FTW. 

Mini Comics (a Mini-Guide) by Juliana Strawn, cover by Stephanie Mannheim
Juliana made this zine as a handout for Columbia Graphic Novel Librarian Karen Green's comics and graphic novels class this summer.

Snailwell Gazette #s 1-5, by Elizabeth Bessel, 2006-2007
"I have decided the best thing about independent publishing is the lack of pressure to be absolutely grammatically correct. Run on sentences and overuse of parenthesis and hyphens are not only acceptable but are encouraged by the head publisher (ME!) I am not even going to offer an apology up front for any misspelled words as I am the worst speller in the history of spelling." Disclaimer from #1.
Sounds like an apology to me, but that's part of its
charm. :)
