It’s a wild n’ wooly world of zines out there, for sure!
This January, Zinphony (great name!) took place in Takasaki, Gunma, Japan!
Back in 2012, there was a really cool looking zinefest in Mexico City – [http://zinamigos.tumblr.com/]
They may not exist anymore, but this poster is killin’ it!
And Malaysia has TWO zinefests – one in Johor Bahru, and one in Kuala Lumpur!
How do we know all this magical international info? Thanks to Alex Wrekk, who sustains & mantains the excellent resource – http://www.stolensharpierevolution.org/–> (also a book).
Thank you Alex!! for keeping track of all the lil’ zine events that sprout like a springtime flower, for one perfect season… & the perennials, who rock on every year in full force.
