Who and What We Are

Xerography Debt is a review zine for zine readers by zine writers (and readers). It is a hybrid of review zine and personal zine (the ancestor to many blogs). The paper version has been around since 1999. This blog thing is are attempt to bridge the gap between Web 2.0 and Paper 1.0. Print is not dead, but it is becoming more pixelated.

HANDMADE & BOUND NASHVILLE FESTIVAL ANNOUNCED


We received the following from Zine World:

Handmade & Bound Nashville is a festival celebrating independent publications and printed matter, featuring artists’ books, zines, and mini-comics. This is an event for publishers and artists (as well as zine distros) to come together to sell and/or trade their handmade and affordable publications and creations.

Handmade & Bound Nashville will be held on Saturday, October 1, at Watkins College of Art, Design, and Film (2298 Rosa L. Parks Blvd.) in Nashville, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission will be free. Additional activities may be scheduled for Friday, September 30. We plan for the festival to include workshops, a documentary screening, and a zine reading. Details TBA.


In addition to the festival, Watkins is sponsoring a juried book arts and zine exhibition, on the theme Encoded Structures: Interpreting the Story, which will be held in the Watkins gallery during the month of October. Submissions for the gallery exhibition will be accepted through August 1, and prizes will be awarded. The exhibition is open to book works in the form of artists’ books, zines, and comics, and will focus on works that use form, content, and context within every aspect of the object’s structure to convey a message and theme to the reader. 


Table registration is now open. Tables are $7 for a half-table, $15 for a full table. Register for a table or find the rules and guidelines for submitting to the gallery exhibition at
handmadeboundnashville.com. You can also find Handmade Bound Nashville on Facebook. We will be seeking volunteers to teach workshops and lead discussions, and folks to help out during the festival. We hope to see you there!
