A Zine is a self-published, small circulation, non-commercial booklet or magazine, usually produced by one person or a few individuals. Zines range from small photocopied booklets, to handwritten or handmade booklets, to magazine-like publications.
Make your own…
Zines make the underground publishing world go round. It’s about form, content and the distribution of ideas in a non-corporate medium.
Okay then, what is an artist’s book?
An artist’s book is a work of art realized in a book-like format. They are usually one-of-a-kind creations or published in small editions, and can employ a form other than bound printed sheet.
Born in 2010, Handmade & Bound Nashville is a celebration of artists’ books, zines, comics, graphic novels, printmaking and and more. While the gallery show will feature artists’ books made in local community centers, the library’s exhibit will be Zines. Our call for zines in 2012 was magnificent. Answering the call for zines in all formats and all subjects, our show introduced the world of Zines to the Nashville community.
Zine-O-Rama No.2 will do the same. Send us your zines: personal zines, cookzines, fanzines, artiness, cut and pate, comics, minis, mental health. We will display your zine wether it’s stapled or tied, screen printed or Xeroxed.
If you’d like to be in the exhibit and then added to the library’s collection, send you zine by September 26 to:
Lisa Williams, Library Director
Watkins College of Art Design, & Film Library
2298 Rosa L. Parks Blvd. Nashville, TN 37228.
An artist statement or bio to exhibit would be great, but not required. If you would just like to be in the Zine-O-Rama exhibit and would like your Zine back please contact email@example.com.
If you would like to be a vendor, the deadline for registration is September 22nd. You can find all of the information you need on being a vendor here.
