Zines at Handmade & Bound Nashville, 3rd edition

This year Handmade & Bound Nashville welcomes an exciting collection of zine authors to our tables. We featured Todd Dills in our September 20th post.

Along with him, we welcome Kelli Hix. Kelli will be selling her cards and poetry and art zine, Dimanche.  Russel Mayhan and Chris Davidson, two Watkins students will be selling their zine, Thorazine. Asheville artist Jessica White will be here with zines and letterpress cards and prints. New York Artist, Leah Wishnia will be selling artists’ books, zines, jewelry, t-shirts and more. Rose and the Owl Farm will be back.  Leslie Patterson Marx will be back with her University School students and their zines.

And another Watkins student, Zie Campbell (a.k.a H&BN’s fabulous graphic designer) will be selling as well.  Finally, we’re excited to welcome Louis Schmidt, first artist in residence at the Watershed Residency in Watertown Tennessee. He and Watershed will be here. We’re hoping to get some impromptu zine readings going on.

What's a zine?

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.

Why zines?
Zines make the underground publishing world go round. It’s about form, content and the distribution of ideas in a non-corporate medium.
