Moth Woman Press at the 2016 Festival of the Photocopier Zine Fair

Superlatives all round for last Sunday afternoon's Sticky Institute Festival of the Photocopier Zine Fair at Melbourne Town Hall. Thanks to the City of Melbourne, the phenomenal organisational skills of Sticky Institute, the camaraderie of our zine fair neighbours Gracia, Louise and Miranda Costa, my partner Shane Jones, our amazing fellow zinesters and last, but no means least, to the hoards of zine lovers who came in droves, it really was an afternoon to remember.

Very soon after, the queue began to build

At the day's end, my own haul included zines and other goodies by Gracia and Louise, Miranda Costa and Jessica Knight, Claire Murphy, Kathy A. Sarpie, Bloomurderzines, and a wonderful zine/calendar by Emma Armstrong-Porter. Some were acquired, some were gifted, all will be treasured.
