Greeting and salutations!
More zine trade updates to come, but first a quick post about some new zines that we’ll have available at the MCA this Thursday as past of Creative Sydney’s LO-FI AND LOVING IT: NEW DOGS, OLD TRICKS night. Bird in the Hand zine distro will be representing with a bunch of Sydney zines including Panacea for Loneliness #2 and Newdel and Rose [which were both available at the MCA zine fair last month] as well as Ampersand after Ampersand #2, which is hot off the press this weekend.
All three were also hand delivered to Sticky on Saturday [if you're not in the Sydney area], where I took the opportunity of testing the C3100 photocopier and let me say, AMAZING.
A little something about the new zines…
Newdel and Rose
A6, 38 pages
Our little caped adventurer Newdel is back again! This time Newdel sets out making his own special friend to spend his days with dancing, pretending and star gazing. Let’s hope the friendship never ends.
DISCLAIMER: Keep your tissue box close.
Panacea for Loneliness #2
A6, 16 pages
This little followup to the original Panacea for Loneliness is more of my musings on scenes in films that I like. This cinematic mixtape includes contemplating the similarities between Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Monte Carlo biscuits, the behind the scenes shenanigans on What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, how Blue Velvet has inspired all my dance moves and things I learned from Don’t Look Now and Bad Education.
Ampersand after Ampersand #2
A5, 24 pages
This is another personal zine inspired by my decision to quit the call centre that I’ve previously referenced in the Epitaph for my Heart series. Includes events that propelled this life-changing [for the better] decision, my take on the etiquette of resigning from crappy jobs, the aftermath of quitting and the politics of office ‘theft’.
Plus we’ll also have a new mini zine called Four Eyes For Life available for free!
So here are the details:
Where? Museum of Contemporary Art, Circular Quay
When? Thursday 11th June from 5:30pm
We’d love to see you there, it should be an excellent night!
