Open Call by Thames & Hudson

We want you (and your zines)!

To mark the pub­lic­a­tion of Fan­zines, Teal Triggs, Lon­don Col­lege of Com­mu­nic­a­tion (LCC) and Thames & Hud­son are cur­at­ing a spe­cial pop-up read­ing room in The Well Gal­lery space at the LCC.

This tem­por­ary space will show­case rare pub­lic­a­tions from the LCC Zine Archive and the author’s col­lec­tion, but we want zine fans and zine makers to get involved too!

We are invit­ing sub­mis­sions for the Read­ing Room as a rep­res­ent­a­tion of cur­rent pub­lic­a­tions and future col­lect­ibles. This includes inde­pend­ent pub­lic­a­tions in all formats: zines, news­pa­pers, magazines, hand­made or glossy – we want them all! The pop-up room may be tem­por­ary, but selec­ted sub­mis­sions will then go on to live forever as part of the LCC Zine Archive.

How to get involved

The event is sched­uled to take place on Monday 20 Septem­ber 2010.

Miss Read


For the second time MISS READ has invited inter­na­tion­al pub­lish­ers and artists to show their artist books at KW Insti­tute for Con­tem­por­ary Art in Ber­lin. As a genre of its own, the artist book reflects con­tem­por­ary ways of artist­ic pro­duc­tion and pub­lish­ing to a great extent and also addresses issues of present­a­tion and cir­cu­la­tion as well as new strategies of dis­tri­bu­tion. Present­ing a selec­tion of more than 40 of the most act­ive con­trib­ut­ors in this field, the fest­iv­al provides the rare oppor­tun­ity to encounter and explore the con­tem­por­ary scene of inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ing. More here!
