Chicago Zine Fest

I went to Chicago Zine fest with Simone yesterday, and it was AMAZING.  The community there was so friendly and welcoming, and I bought some great zines )Indigo, You've Got a Friend in PA, Hoax, "Life, Death, Love & All of the Above", Mend my Dress, On the Cusp,and a few others. I also got to meet some fantastic people.  Thanks to everyone there who willingly engaged in long conversations with that random girl flipping through their zines.

New E.T. Printworks store!

The Enchanted Times has been sitting happily alongside my TangleCrafts stuff for the last couple of years, but it actually now makes up at least half of my stock, so that the TangleCrafts header wasn't really feeling like the most appropriate sales banner for it (although still appropriate to the rest of the stuff).  Although I will continue to keep a lesser amount of ET stock in the…

Poem: Relaxed after Reading

Relaxed after reading

I closed my book.

My eyelids follow

and there appeared stairs.

I began to descend

step after step.

The light of my lantern

bounced off the quartz

embedded in the walls.

I blinked my eyes

and a draft of air,

a repeating echo,

swept me away...

across an ocean

and an ocean beyond

across outer space

across time itself ...

There appeared ahead

a high raised place.

I stood on a mountain…

Interview with zinesters

Hi, my name is Gabriel, I'm from France and I'm here in the United States for six months as an international student in San Francisco. I'm currently doing research on zines: I study communication in France and I'm writting a 60 pages thesis about zines and alternative medias in the American underground culture.

I would like to get in contact with zinesters to interview them for my research. If you are or used to be a zinester and are willing to help, get in touch with me! The…

Musea Art Contest 3/6/12 - good luck

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

The 1966 sci-fi film, 'Fahrenheit 451", is all about the Firemen, who instead of stopping fires, seek out all books ( that author Bradbury thought burned at 451 degrees) and burn them to help control information. The art question is this, there are only 2 words printed in the film (that aren't on the covers of the books that are shown). What are they?

IS

"The End" at the very end, adding a bit of hope to a…
