It's kind of crazy to think that I started this blog eight months ago and have so far written almost 250 reviews. Crazy.
So! Today is the start of the Birmingham Zine Festival, which will continue in some way another for the next few weeks.
Today (Thursday) at 5pm is the launch of the Zine Art Exhibition, which I wish I could go to, but won't see until next week.
Then, tomorrow (Friday) at 7:30pm, is the launch of the Postcard Art Exhibit, which I have art in! Hurray. I also won't see it until next Friday when the festival kicks into high gear, with a movie night, a zine fair, a club night, and a picnic. I can't wait!
In other news I was asked to link to this Pop-Up Zine Reading Room, that's happening in London on Monday, September 20th. It's in support of a book about zines by Teal Triggs (here's an interview with her on the Birmingham Zine Festival site). However, the book has caused some controversy amongst zinesters over the use of their zines.
