I mentioned to a friend yesterday that if it wasn’t for the stress of impending exams and essays, and subsequently an increase in my procrastination activities, I’m not sure whether I’d ever get around to writing zines. But considering that it’s the end of semester, and despite all intentions otherwise, I’ve managed to watch enough interesting films in the last couple of weeks to inspire a new Panacea for Loneliness.
A6, 20 pages, black and white
I wasn’t particularly aware of it whilst writing this zine but this issue contains some of the stranger films I’ve seen lately – from The Piano Teacher to The City of Lost Children; from Wings of Desire to See the Sea; from Repulsion to The Vanishing.
I’m going to send it out to Sticky on Monday, otherwise it’ll be on Etsy or as always available for trades.
We know we’ve been a tad quiet over the past couple of months blog wise but that doesn’t mean the zine making has stopped. Check out our new zines below. Available online at our etsy and madeit stores soon or trade (of course!)
Things I never said (1) by Amanda
A6 16 page B/W zine.
Kind of exactly what it sounds like i.e. thirteen things that I have at one point or another had the chance to say but didn’t.

More things I wish I had said, as well as some interesting facts about sea life taken from the Girls’ Crystal Annual 1959.

New A6 p-p-p-perzine 20 page B/W. Not about the comic Peanuts, but if it was that would be dope.

Because we are a lovely pair of gals we have made a little love zine for all of our loyals readers to have, whoever you are. Download the zine from here and print it out and give it to your lover(s), friends, yo’ momma or keep it for yourself. Alternatively, you can pick up a copy of this zine at Cafe C in Newtown (on king st) tomorrow (for free), as well a v-day cupcake and coffee (not free, but delicious, up to you really ha.)
Print out and fold along the solid lines and cut along the dotted line. Voilà!!
Have a lovely weekend and we will be back to report on some zine trades and new zines from us!
P.s. if you have trouble figuring out how to fold it into a little book shoot us an email at tinypapermail[at]gmail.com and we’ll post a video of said procedure.
Here’s just a taste of some of the stuff we’re working on for an upcoming art auction in September.
It’s being held at the Mori Gallery (168 Day St Sydney) to raise funds for the art space SquareOne which is a project run by the non-gov, non-profit youth media + arts organisation Vibewire. The actual exhibition and auction is on September 13th but if there are any kids out there who want to donate their mad skills in the form of art you have up to September 1st to send or hand it into SquareOne in Ultimo.
The deal is:
“We are asking artists to donate a work of art. It may be of any size
or format, but we ask that you send us a description of the work
incuding it’s title, dimensions, media, and if possible, a photograph.
All works will be auctioned on the night; 80% of the money raised will
go to SquareOne, & 20% will go back to you – the artist.”
If you want any more info about this email natalie [at] vibewire.net for all the details. Either way you should pencil it into your diaries, it looks like it’ll be a great night.
Opening night was pretty great! Heaps of people came and all in all everyone had a great time. The vegan gingerbread cookies and fairy bread I made were a hit (Maddy & Natalie also made fairy bread and cupcakes yum yum!), and were gone before I could even get some. The place was decked out in really awesome works, Chris Tamm did an amazing job of it all. I feel very lucky to have been given a chance to be a part of it. Exhibition is open till the 20th of May, 10am – 5pm daily at Pine St Gallery in Chippendale.
