Hey, would you look at that? Print media’s not dead, it’s just gone small-scale. If things like Indie Mart and Etsy can renew the public’s interest in lovingly-crafted stuffed animals and recycled jewelry, why can’t someone do the same for all those things we’d rather read on paper than on a computer screen?
This year marks SF Zinefest’s 9th year celebrating litmags, fanzines, comics and anything else that deserves to be put down on a piece of paper and xeroxed. Think about that: 9 years is longer than some magazines have managed to last. So whether you’re looking to start the next Broke-Ass publishing house or you just like to treat your reading material like some people treat rare records, then perusing the aisles this weekend at the SF County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park seems like a good way to spend an afternoon.
