Angry Violist #6 at the Alternative Press Fair, August 4th 2012, London

Howdy,

I am pleased to say that I will be selling Angry Violist numero 61 at the 2nd International Alternative Press Fair in London on 4th August 2012. I’ll be there tabling with other members of the Cambridge Zine Boogaloo consortium selling magazines, zines, stash tins, stickers and other swag of pure awesomeness.

Come by, say hello, bring us coffee!

Angry Violist stockists in the UK

I’ve been trying to get my zine spread far and wide on this island nation of ours, in small press dealerships, galleries and, well, anywhere that’ll have me.
