cataloging

The New York City zine community commemorated International Zine Month with a three-event NYC Zine Weekend.

I went to all the events, and also cataloged zines!

July 4th is the birthday Louis Armstrong grew up celebrating. Apparently he was really born the day before or after, but whatever.

I'm sad to be missing the ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco, but happy to have been able to spend my time cataloging zines instead of conferencing. Still, missing out on the fun at the Zine Pavilion is killing me.

Have you ever noticed how many current and former zine makers have Gemini as a sun sign? Just Like a Gemini author Jolie Nuñez-Noggle is one, but also Margarita Alcantara, Andria Alefhi, Sara Jaffe, Lauren Jade Martin, Carrie McNinch, Celia Perez, Annie Pho, Alycia Sellie, Kelly Shortandqueer, Eleanor Whitney, and Alex Wrekk, to name those listed on my Facebook birthday calendar.

Should I start playing Neko Atsume? This has nothing to do with the zines I cataloged this week, but the question is weighing on me.

While I was cataloging the zines in this blog post the class of 2015 was partying on the lawn outside the library.

The Pioneer Valley Zine Fest happened this weekend while I was cataloging over a hot laptop.

I hope the organizers, tablers and other participants had the best time!

Cataloging like a pharaoh!

Here's what it looked like in NYC on this fine first day of spring, 2015.

Linz Zuelich made a zine every Friday for a while. Did she really mean zine, I wonder, or collage?
