“Whan that aprill”

Chaucer was right.  The “sweet showers of April” are one sign of Spring, along with National Poetry Month and the first stirrings of Handmade & Bound Nashville.  The Academy of American Poets suggests one way to celebrate: take a poem out to lunch.  Handmade & Bound Nashville celebrates Spring and Poetry Month by announcing the dates for the fourth edition of the Handmade & Bound Nashville festival and marketplace of artists’ books, zines, printmaking and more.

Zine-O-Rama is a glimpse into the world of zines (rhymes with beans).  Zinesters from Antioch, TN, to Italy have contributed their creations to this exhibition which illustrates the wide range of techniques and subjects that typify this very personal form of publishing. The addition of a few librarian selected zines from as far away as Australia and Malaysia, ensures examples showcasing art, photography, vegan cooking, politics, fiction, lots of comics, and more in a variety of shapes, sizes, and bindings.  Zine-O-Rama is on display during regular library hours October 4 through October 31 in the Library at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, 2298 Rosa L. Parks Blvd., Nashville, TN 37228.

Send Us Your Zines

As part Papercutterof volume 2 of Handmade & Bound Nashville,  we are very excited to feature zines in a massive way as part of our events. This year we’d like to educate and appreciate zines in all formats and on all subjects from perzines, cookzines, artzines, and musiczines from all regions (particularly Nashville) to minizines, cut and paste zines and comics.  The exhibit will be in the Library of Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, home of one of only two zine collections in Tennessee, and run for the month of October. We’d love to display your zine whether stapled or tied, screen printed or simply photocopied. If your interested, send your zine by September 15  to Lisa Williams, library director, Watkins College of Art Design and Film Library, 2298 Rosa Parks Boulevard, Nashville, Tennessee 37228.  After the show, we’ll ship your zine back to you or happily add them to our collection
