MCA ZINE FAIR
Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to participate in the MCA Zine Fair for the second year in a row. The event is always so much fun and this year was no exception. I shared a table with my good friends Georgia and Radge. We had a great day showing off our wares and checking out the amazing selection of zines on offer. Thanks to all that visited the stall and bought a treat from me!
My zine offerings included a tiny book of disguises, a twin set of tiny zines to share with a best friend, a zine made entirely of felt landscapes, some yummy felt food brooches, and my proudest achievement: the first issue of my Party Craft zine. Party Craft will be a series of little publications aimed to instruct and inspire readers to create wonderful parties of their own. It's a little B-Side to the party-related project I mentioned earlier (and will reveal soon!)
At the fair I snagged a few true gems for myself, including: some of Georgia's amazing badges, a Ken Done postcard from All Thumbs Press, the new issue of The Tilted Page by my friend Jonathon Venezuela, a little feather card by Claire Orrell, a brilliant hand painted gemstone notepad by Spoonful, and a collection of precious sketches in a polkadot envelope by Yumi Takahashi of Dear Plastic.
For those of you who couldn't make it to the zine fair, I have posted a collection of zines that I sold last year online for sale and will update my shop with the new batch of printed delights - including Party Craft - in the next couple of days. Hope you like them!
