Help!

Hello friends,

We’re hoping you might be able to help. To keep the online store open, it costs us far more than the small amounts we get from selling zines. We want to keep growing the zine distro and expanding the possbilities for the zinemakers we stock. To do this, we currently rely on people ordering things online, at zine fairs, and also the money we get from sales of Susy Pow’s zines - Tea & Biscuits, Don’t Panic, Everything Was Beautiful & Nothing Hurt, Comparisons Between… Continue

Neverending Creation Project

If you’ve been toiling around my traps recently you may have been cajoled and accosted by me to do whatever-the-fuck-you-want to one page in a little zine-like scrapbook I’ve been creating and letting you create. The first book is nearly full. It’s full of things by (off the top of my head):



Simon Unwin (of the band, Intentions)

Jodie Brabin (of the Dep’t of Ageing)

Catman (of the zine, Krumpets, and the music Catman)

Dan Bolton (of that old band Faux Hawks)

Maddy… Continue

MIXTAPE ZINE ISSUE 8 HAS LANDED

The new issue of Mixtape has hit my letterbox and excited me just a little too much. I've stuck it up on my Online Store for all you shoppers out there..........



"This is a beautifully crafted zine. Since its humble beginnings, Mixtape has grown from strength to strength. What began as an exciting project between two crafty females from Melbourne has become a very professionally printed, full colour zine that is still all about DIY and a strong love of art.

Call for Zine Exhibition

Hi,



I'm organising a zine exhibition for around March with various zinemakers - a collective, if you like - and I wondered whether you had a zine ready or something you'd like to make, which could be included in the exhibition?



There will be pages (or excerpts) from zines blown up to larger sizes and displayed on the wall in whichever creative form the zinemaker wants. For example, simple A3 or A2 sized posters or on canvasses or inside books hung on the wall... The… Continue

I'm Really Excited

I just wanted to post and say how EXCITED I am about today and what today brings.



Today is a zine fair at the Penrith Regional Gallery in Emu Plains. I am especially delighted today because I have loads of new stock in the distro and I can't wait to see Tiny Paper Hearts new felt animals. I also can't wait to find a new notebook to spew my thoughts into all the time. It's been far too long without a pen in my bag.



Besides this, I also just sent off some $$ for a zine grab… Continue

Let us trade zines!!!!

Yesterday I started a group on We Make Zines called Lets Trade Zines! I was hoping to be able to get all the zinemakers together who want to trade zines and make it easier for them to trade. Sometimes I contact people and I am a little worried that they won't want to trade with me. This group means people will post up a comment and that will act as a surety that they want to trade!!! I've already had one request for my zines from the Lets Trade Zines so I hope many more will come.

Life Without Internet

Well, it seems my life has changed in many ways in the last ho hum... week and a half. Not too long ago my boyfriend kicked my ass to the curb and this provided the catalyst for a world of physical change (and emotional growth).



I left the tiny apartment we shared last week and moved into an even smaller sunroom of a bedroom. I purged my belongings into this small space and started negotiating my way around housemates again. We're designing a vegie patch in the backyard for… Continue
