Two more London events - July 9th & Aug 12th


London is very much blessed with a whole load of great zine related events this summer. Some have already happened, but two more have come to my attention, so these are the next four that I know about. 

This Sunday 9th July is the London Artists' Book Fair. Filling a gap due to the demise of other artists' book fairs, this new free event has an impressive list of exhibitors here & here. Among the zine makers will be Michael Nicholson of SZR favourite Bio Auto Graphic.



As already posted, on the 15th of July you'll find Weirdo Zine Fest in East London, and on the other side of town the South London Zine & Comic Fair


Back east on the 12th August Breakdown Press presents Safari Festival - new waves in contemporary comics and art. Visit their website for full line-up and details: safari-festival.com

I'll be popping along to all four - so if you see me, please come say hi (this is what I look like). And if you have a zine for review, and are too shy to say hello, just thrust it in my hand with a note. 




PS - I know this is a review site, so these event related posts will self destruct as soon as the dates have passed. But events are the backbone of the zine community, and are the best way to discover your latest favourite zine you didn't know existed.
