We had a Zine Release and Swap Party at Papercut last weekend and it was a success!
6-7 new zines from the Boston area were shown off in our space, and folks traded and read excerpts aloud all while enjoying the refreshments. We hope to make this a regular thing, so stay tuned if you are planning on releasing your own zine in the coming months.
We also had a spur of the moment Gallery opening, when an old friend of the Library stopped by to drop off some posters which were used in the 2008 Boston Zine Fair.
The full-color posters display some of our very own zine covers, and next to each poster hangs the zine from which the poster was made from.
We are calling this exhibit: “Zines As Art” — Come check it out soon and see them for yourself!
