There IS Kunstler in Wynn Lane - big wooden box in a valley back alley - that sells independent publications with large print runs. I guess you'd call them zines as they're independently produced and funded by individuals, but a lot of them have a group of professionals backing them.

There isn't a one-stop place for zines in Brisbane atm. You can read them at the State Library and Visible Inc, but their collections are very limited and you'd have to track one down yourself if you want your own copy to refer to.

Still new to the zine thing though, and would love to be corrected.

So there's the recently opened 'A Zine Thing' distro in Frankston area, Sticky in Melbourne, Aunty Mabel's Zine Distro in WA... Surely I'm missing some. Perhaps heaps.

For Nutella world domination, yes.

D: And one of those just opened up! Everything is falling into place...

Costco. :)

I've been seeing those 1L tubs of Nutella... like, where do you even get those!?

I like the sound of the first - sounds like poetry for the masses. Google does well for Elizabeth Tan.

FYI - never read the dietary information on the back of the Nutella jar!

https://www.tumblr.com/tagged/photocopy-press The third looks like an interesting i-novel. They're popular in Japan, and I think the Western world will learn to appreciate it more through the rest of this decade. If you haven't, you should take a week off school/work/minecraft to read Ruth Ozeki's 'For the Time Being' because it's just amazing.

I'm only recently (for the past few months) getting back into the swing of things. Some all-time favourites are:

*Instructions for surviving the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE in rhyming couplets

*The Nutella Cookbook

*Photocopy Press

The first is just plain funny, the second is for my love of Nutella, and the third... is so much like a little magazine with all kinds of bits and bobs. I love it. I only have one and two, so I must hunt down more.

So while the small few are active, should we talk zines? Zines that you've been particularly fond of - go!
