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.
With a cover by Josh MacPhee and centerfold by Molly Fair (both Interference Archive archivists and Justseeds artists) this zine detailing a delegation of librarians and archivists visiting Palestine was compiled by Barnard librarians Vani Natarajan and me, and also by delegation co-leader Hannah Mermelstein. It's not for sale yet. Keep an eye on the delegation blog, Facebook or Twitter for info on its release.
