Hey UK zinesters!

 

I'm helping to organise a Zine Fair in Oxford on Saturday 9th April, and thought maybe some of you guys might be interested?

 

It should be pretty cool - there's gonna be mixtape and zine making workshops, DJs & bands (good ones!), plus..yknow, zines...

 

The facebook page for it is here, and that has more info: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=189270527779053 - or you can contact me here or email ellisjonesATgmail.com

 

And yeah, we still have some stalls left, so if you're interested then get in touch!

 

Sorry to trouble you!

Not Lonely #5 

A6 (quarter) sized, 40 pages, pretty text-heavy


The latest issue of my perzine focuses on the history of my relationship with the internet (including my first experiences of using it in a small-town library, its role in facilitating my partner and I getting together & why I no longer use livejournal or facebook); and my diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (including a breakdown of its definition, my own experience of its symptoms and a reflection on its validity - or otherwise - as a diagnosis). There are also handwritten intro and outros, a "guess the lyrics" quiz and some yummy winter soup recipes (suitable for vegans). It's partly typewritten, partly handwritten and was made cut and paste style.

 

Please visit this post on my blog for information on how to get a copy.

There's a little feature about marching stars distro on page 38 of DIVA magazine this month! I hope I did justice to the zine community!

Not Lonely #4
A6 (quarter) sized, 40 pages

The newest issue of my perzine is loosely based around lists of 4. I write about self-esteem, liking "old lady" things, bad habits, the joys of tea, going back on anti-depressants, things I like/dislike in books (as well as a longer list of my favourite books) & pets, amongst other rants & rambles. I wrote most of the zine on an old typewriter, some parts are handwritten & it's all made in cut & paste style with pretty and/or vintage images.

Please take a look at my profile page for details on how to get a copy.

Hi all!

I have just released my first zine - a collaboration with twenty up-and-coming illustrators called 'The Music One'.

A little more info;

'The concept of this zine is simple - take a handful of music-obsessed illustrators and designers and ask them to do a portrait of their favourite musician or band. Then get each contributor to write a few words about their favourite record by their chosen muse.

This was something of a dream project for me to compile as a self-confessed record nerd and illustrator.

Contributors;

Marcus Oakley
Lewis Heriz
Ben Javens
Lizzie Stewart
Henry St Leger
Jake Blanchard
Alex Jako
Darryl Norsen
Tom Fewings
Mark Oliver
Peter Locke
Dominic Dyson
James Fry
Stewart Easton
Joseph Blakey
Graeme Ross
Matthew Williams
Damon Unwin
Mat Pringle

The eclectic range of musicians covered include the likes of The Beach Boys, Johnny Cash, Francois de Roubaix, Will Oldham, Todd Rundgren, Raymond Scott, Bruce Springsteen, Vivian Stanshall, Porter Wagoner and John Zorn amongst others.

The zine is 40 pages, A5, grayscale and has a screen-printed cover. The initial run featuring Henry St Leger's portrait of Vivian Stanshall on the cover is limited to 150 copies coming in a variety of different colours.'


Email me if you would like to trade zines etc.

Thanks!

Mat
