This week I planned to do some snail mail related stuff connected to zines because it’s “postal week”. I didnt really get everything done that I set out to do, but I still did some fun mail/zine things. — Recently, my friend Cathou gave me a lovely stamp set that I now used to decorate envelopes and cards. I really love stamps! Sometimes I try to make my own with lino. Here you can see some results of the stamps and a self-made lino in the shape of stars: Some great news: Ana of Artificial Womb distro + zine from Scotland asked me to distribute my zines, and I gladly accepted! Yay! Heavy Mental from Berlin are also going to stock some of my zines. I’m usually quite bad at promotion/sales/distribution of my zines, but I’m making progress! Another thing that made me very happy is that Ana wants to make a split zine with me! Double yay! I just finished reading this hilarious comic book, a collection of comic zines: The Super-Happy Anarcho Fun Book. You can read the comics online too and the zines are distributed for free. Maybe it’s only funny if you’re in some way into the anarchist/activist scene, but I’d recommend to check it out anyway. The comics make fun of everyone: all types of anarchists, liberals, hipsters, cops, peace activists, misogynists, eco-hippies, capitalists… There’s even a story in the book about a dumpster on its way to a G20 protest!
a low-budget DIY feminist publishing and creation project started by Zina aka Nina, for her zines, comix and pamphlets (sometimes she makes music, spoken word and crafts too).
Apart from posting about Nina's own zines, she uses this blog to announce feminist zine-related news, especially from Belgium, write zine reviews and share articles about DIY feminist zine culture.
(ECHO is not a distro or publishing company!)
