Why print matters, and why you’ll see us at the Brooklyn Zine Fest 2013 tomorrow.
GOOD Magazine has a piece from Brooklyn Zine Fest 2013 exhibitor James Aviaz about his journey from print author to digital content creator and back again, and learn to re-love the printed word (if you didn’t already). Our favorite passage:
“If ever you need to be reminded of the reverence of print, make something physical and give it to a loved one. Then compare their reaction with that time you sent them a cute .jpg you made in Photoshop. There is no comparison.”
The second issue of James’ zine Everything is Fucked, Everything is OK came out just in time for tomorrow’s Brooklyn Zine Fest 2013 (Sunday, April 21st from 11am-6pm at Public Assembly in Williamsburg), and James & Andrew have re-printed their sold-out Hurricane Sandy-themed copy especially for the fest.
In other only-at-the-BZF news, you’ll finally be able to pick up a copy of Jungleland: A Springzine, which was limited to an initial run of 100 copies printed in the UK and sold out long ago. Edited by Matthias Scherer, Jungleland has been re-printed in Brooklyn by BZF organizers Matt Carman and Kseniya Yarosh of I Love Bad Movies, this zine features essays, short stories, and poems about Bruce Springsteen, his music, and the characters who populate his songs. It may not have been born in the USA, but it’s finally available here. See you tomorrow!
