I'm having my debut zine launch at the Sticky Institute this Wednesday, the 2nd of February from 6-7pm at Sticky (down in the Flinders Street/Degraves Street Subway). It features as part of this years "I am Typewriter Festival."
Those who attend will be among the first to pick up this newest zining member of "The Top Eleven" series.
Here is the synopsis for the zine, and the lauch/forum:
Typewriters eventually need their ribbon replaced because ink runs out.
But what do people do with this old ribbon once its removed from the
typewriter? This zine guides enthusiasts through 11 easy and realistic
activities or uses for a ribbon, once discarded; ranging from friendship
bands, to dreamcatchers, to marathon finishing lines.
The Launch features a one-off instructional forum, an intimate how-to of functions, taken from the zine.
Please please please BYO old typewriter ribbon to the forum.
I will also be selling a selection of zines at the Annual Zine Fair on Saturday 12th of February, 1-6pm, in the Flinders Street subway.
