Ok, I’ll be the first to admit it. The fetus and I have been getting so sandblasted lately with all these zine fairs and school work and chocolate holidays that we completely forgot to update about some of the excellent zine trades we have been receiving.
So, first things first.
Erik and Laura-Marie Magazine #44
This chunky A5 zine from Sacramento combines zine and book reviews with poetry, writings about religion and personal history. It was a lovely read and definitely inspired us to try and find some of the zines she talks about (especially since she mentions Katie Haegele who traded us White Elephants!) For more, click on her blog or email her at robotmad[at]gmail[dot]com.
Feels Like Friday #9
Another issue from Sydney zinester Ivana Stab! In her words, writings about “reality or lack thereof; boy(s); driving down the coast; identity through nationality; the usual”. As always, an awesome cut-and-paste perzine. Check out her blog or email ivanaforpresident[at]hotmail[dot]com.
Secret Diary of Imaginary Friends
This cute A5 art zine, courtesy of Dee Humidifier, is filled with black/white and coloured illustrations drawn over spring/summer 2008. To see more of Dee’s art check out We Make Zines and deviantART or email her at whatanarcissist[at]gmail[dot]com.
We traded with Fergus after reading about her lovely zines on Flying Machine. These amazing, fabric covered A7 zines are packed full of alphabeticised goodness about clothes, favourite suburbs and more. Excellent for reading on buses, in bed or over tea. Find her on We Make Zines here.
And that’s all that’s fit to print. If you’d like to trade send your zine to PO Box 392 Newtown NSW 2042 Australia!
