Orlando Zine Fest took off last year — understandably — but is back this weekend with a new location and a terrific roster of local and regional DIY publishers peddling their zine-y wares.
This Saturday, December 18, from 6-10 p.m., more than 40 zinesters and artists from across Florida will be rolling out card tables and filling them with all kinds of self-published goodness and printed ephemera. It is a clearinghouse of unique zines (self-published journals), pamphlets, book arts, and artwork across genre and subject.
This year’s OZF is moving from the usual digs at Will’s Pub to the parking lot at the back of the Nook on Robinson – a bit more spacious so everyone can spread out.
This year’s entrants include a number of publications familiar to local aficionados (and our readers), including Bonk! Break the Chain, Illuminated Paths, Center for Post-Capitalist History, No Nothing Mag, Book Arts Guild of Central Florida, Jen Sandwich, Is It Over Yet?, Kieran Castaño, SR50 Magazine and many more.
Orlando Zine Fest is free, but bring a handful of cash because you won’t be able to leave empty-handed.
