zines cataloging

Elizabeth Cady Stanton, seated, and Susan B. Anthony, standing. Library of Congress. I'm pretty sure they're collaborating on a zine here.

Because eff Presidents' Day. 

So my birthday is Sunday, and though my cataloging day is Monday, I imagine I'll spend at least a few birthday hours cataloging zines, cuz that's what I do.

This portrait of my cats was my birthday present from my dearest zine friend, commissioned from another zine friend

It's been a while, but I'm back in the zine cataloging saddle and dedicate this week's additions to my sister Danna, whose 30th birthday it is today. 

This photo of Danna is fitting for a blog post about zines. 

Zine-like publications (authored by a nun) I saw at the SAKALA library in Cite Soleil, Port-au-Prince, Haiti

This is what I look like when I'm cataloging zines from home, as I was on December 30.

In which we find the cache of zines donated by Mimi & Daniela. More to come next week.

The seventeen zines cataloged this week include three authored by twins, two by one sister, and one by both:

While I was cataloging zines, two of my awesome colleagues were talking about our summer BambooDiRT project. #allaboutthestring

Sadly, we don't have any issues of Pagan's Head zine at Barnard, though we do have Pagan Kennedy's books. I'm using her zine cover as a weird nod to today being the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy being assassinated.

In which I learn that long-time zine maker Sarah Rose is a professional balloon twister.
