Also: A selection from The Zinester's Guide to NYC edited by Ayun Halliday.
This issue also features handmade silkscreen covers, marble paper, and inserts.
Here's what I've been working on over Thanksgiving break--silkscreening the covers and getting everything together for the Biblioball! Stay tuned for how you can order a copy and for further information about this year's zine.
The 2010 Biblioball draws near! Get your tickets! I am excited that all proceeds go to the Literacy for Incarcerated Teens program, including any proceeds from the upcoming The Borough is My Library zine, issue 2, which will debut at the Biblioball!
We're writing and contemplating, collating and copying, scissoring, drafting, and spreading out all the zine supplies in Bed Stuy. This issue, I promise, will be grand. I've been interviewing a few of my library heroes, and they have been wowing and inspiring me (as usual) and making me really grateful to the Desk Set crew for offering this opportunity (and deadline!) to share my library publication. Stay tuned for more details!
