Zines - New

This is what's going on at your zine librarian's house about now, aside from cataloging other people's zines:

Farfel is this close to kicking my zine copies off the table if I don't pay attention to him.

November 14th is your zine librarian's father's birthday, so in his honor, here's a zine cover from a rad dad I know, who happens to publish a zine called...Rad Dad. My dad is, in fact, rad. 

Cover from Tomas's blog.

This weekend was the 12th Philly Zine Fest

I didn't go, but I did catalog a bunch of zines. 

Today I'm cataloging issues of Xerography Debt, donated by the editor, Davida Gypsy Breier, posing below as Tom Selleck. Happy Halloween, everyone!

This blog post just about done, but a few quotations are pending permission. Also, the CLIO links won't work until the database refreshes. (Look titles up in CLIO Legacy if you can't wait.)

Since I'm still cataloging zines I acquired at the Brooklyn Zine Fest in April, here's another photo from it--one of sweetiepie Kerri Radley, from whom I bought some of the zines I added this weekend.

This week--and probably next week too, and maybe the week after: zines purchased at the Brooklyn Zine Fest.

Crap photo by me. I didn't see this on the internet and thought it was necessary.

If you're wondering what this photo has to do with zines, zines have anarchopunk politics behind them, lots are about the environment, and climate change effects us all, regardless. 

Between vacation, conference attendance, picking up a zine collection donation (Thank you, ♥Cheryl Tapper♥!!!) and Labor Day, I cataloged zines only once in August and in September so far. I've been missing my beloveds, so hooray!
