Sat. Nov. 10th 11:00 am – 5:00 pm UW-Madison, Helen C. White Library (600 N. Park St.) Madison Zine Fest and First Annual Dane County Print Explosion! Join us for this one-day show of printed matter, including posters, stickers, zines, journals, and books. The roster of exhibitors includes experimental publishers, visual artists, artisanal bookmakers and printers, radical imprints, grassroots zine authors, and activist designers. The exhibitors hail from across Wisconsin and from around the United States. Drawing on the traditions of radical book fairs, artistic printed matter, and the zine underground, the DCPE is a meeting place for contemporary print media subcultures. For lovers and collectors of creative print media, this is the place to buy, sell, trade, meet, talk, grok. Plus, there will be a series of related workshops across Library Mall in the Humanities Building. Info? Check out: http://printexplosion.blogspot.com/
