zines - new

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. 

I'm married to a first-time marathoner running New York on Sunday, so this cataloging report is dedicated to him. 

This is the week I finish cataloging Keight Bergmann's donation. Thank you SO MUCH Keight!!!

That's Keight on the front/right wearing a blue scarf. Also pictured are Yumi Lee (back left), who donated her zines in 2006; Marissa Falco (in the cute hat), who donated her zine collection in 2009 and Laura Fisher, holding the bicycle (maybe we'll get her zines in 2015?).
