Fliss of Athemaura zine and the SWZines collective organised a zine afternoon in the Putney libary (in the south west of London) on May 7th. Fliss has been making zines for 20 years now. That’s why she set up a very nice exhibition of her zine work. Besides Fliss’ and my zines, there were zines for sale from other zine makers from Belgium, the UK, and Germany. It was a really interesting selection and I left with plenty of fresh reading materials. 🙂
In the evening I went to a Genesisters event at the Genesis cinema with an artistic documentary on Patti Smith, zines and crafts for sale, and two female-fronted bands. On the same day in London there was the Radical Book Fair too, so really lots of radical self-publishing events to choose from!
