Salford Zine Library

Hey! Guess what! We are now officially in charge of running Salford Zine Library, which is based at Nexus Art Cafe on Dale Street, Manchester. Salford Zine Library exists as a repository for self-published publications about anything, by anyone, from anywhere. There's so much good stuff to read on the shelves (Including Young Explorer!) and we're really excited about being able to help make the library even more inspiring and ace than it is now.

We've got loads of plans spinning around our heads, but we want YOU to get involved too! If you make zines, or are thinking about making a zine, please submit a copy. We can't give you any money for it but we can give you a mention on the blog and on our Twitter account. And you can feel pleased that your zine is sitting amongst another 1400 or so amazing zines from around the world. How cool is that?

See the Salford Zine Library blog for more information about submitting your zine, follow us on Twitter and spread the word! The more zines we have the better.

Woodland Month Part Three: Wildflower Zine

We have been commissioned to produce a zine about wild flowers for Stockbridge Village in Bloom. We're just waiting for it to come back from the printers, but we're pretty pleased with how it's turned out. We've seen some of these flowers and plants while we've been visiting different forests, woods and otherwise green public spaces.

Each page has an illustration of a different plant/flower and some basic information about growing them or just spotting them while you're out and about.

If you own or are involved in running a massive multinational organisation, we will happily do you some kind of zine for mega $$$$. Get in touch!
