We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

The Museum of Contemporary Art zine fair was on yesterday, and from start to finish I left my table only twice, once to deliver some zines to another table, once to go to the toilet and get a coffee. Sorry, amazing new zinester whose work I missed out on - I was too busy to buy your zine.
In typical Rigozzi fashion, I had drastically underestimated the amount of zines I would need, thinking that their exorbitant price tag would turn people away. So I had to break out the stack of uncollated, unstapled, untrimmed, unstamped zines I had in my suitcase. I then paid the people sharing my stall slave-labour wages to help me finish putting them together. I also flogged off a bunch of old screenprints for $10 each. The end result? A massive blister from clutching a craft cutter all day, and possibly enough cash to cover the bond and two weeks rent when I move house next week. Well, basic survival is all the committed zinester can hope for.

Yes, that was me with the Paris zine. I'm looking rather goofy in your photo!
I'm sorry I missed out on all the new zines on offer, although I'm looking forward to reading your new one, Raquel. I also got a quick peek at Glen Barkley's stash and was sorry I missed out on some of the cool-looking stuff there.

Well done Leigh, i was wondering about the assistants. Flaps had a good day too, although not as good as you, but certainly enough to a make the next issue. I feel like I missed out on seeing other peoples stuff too.
