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.
I love, love, love shops full of rare, artist-made goods and things. Wish there was one in my town …. hmmmm, now there’s a thought ….
Well, anyway, here are the fruits of my efforts – I can’t recommend these awesome, innovative places highly enough:
Caribou Caravan, Hopkinson’s Gallery, Nottingham, and on the road
is was a shop in a mini 1957 Glen caravan selling handmade crafts, zines, jewellery, art and upcycled vintage pieces.
Editions of You, Oxford and online
EDITIONS OF YOU stock a collection of UK and international musical releases from independent musicians and small labels with an emphasis on handmade products and innovative design. along with books and zines with a musical or sonic connection.
The Good Press Gallery, Glasgow
GOOD PRESS GALLERY was formed in October 2011 in Glasgow, Scotland, and presents visual art, contemporary illustration, self & independantly published zines, books and other printed matter.
Vampire Sushi Distro, online
You can get my other zine, Hedgehog in the Fog, from this super-awesome zine distro, run by the lovely Miss Tukru.
Please support your local zine sellers and artworkers: buy handmade printed goods frequently and abundantly!
If you run a shop or distro and would like to stock any of my zines, please do get in touch – I would love to hear from you!
