We are excited to announce that Birmingham Zine Festival will be part of Supersonic Festival 2011!
For Supersonic 2011, we’ve invited some of our favourite small press publishers to sell their books, comics and zines:
Lizz Lunney will be selling a range of comics and merchandise including patches, badges and prints from a world of characters such as Dullbog the Bulldog, Leaning Rabbit and Depressed Cat!
Alex Zamora will be supplying copies of Fever Zine, a quarterly lo-fi black and white publication covering a mixture of music, art, fashion, trends, zine culture and more!
Phillipa Rice will be selloing publications of her popular webcomic My Cardboard Life as well as goodies such as prints and bags! We’ll also have zines and an exhibition of artwork from Adam Cadwell, Carla Smith, Catherine Elms, Dina Kelberman, Joe List and many more!
The zine celebrations will also be working their way into other aspects of Supersonic. ‘$100 and a t-shirt’, Joe Biel’s documentary exploring the thoughts and experiences of zine-makers in North America, will be screened.
In addition to this, a panel featuring Alex Zamora, Nic Bullen and Charlie Woolley will discuss the history of zines, their inspirations and how this feeds into modern DIY creativity and publishing in a discussion entitled “From A to Zine.
If you haven’t done so already be sure to get your ticket for Supersonic Festival!
