Zine Machine 

When: Sat., April 16 2016



As its subtitle lets on, there's more than the Tumblr ancestors called zines to be found at Zine Machine: Durham Printed Matter Festival. In addition to little self-published magazines on wildly diverse topics, you'll also find comics, posters, art prints, chapbooks, and more. The common binding is less the printed word than the art of printing itself, from Xerox to letterpress—and the self-sufficient, idiosyncratic alt-media perspective that goes with it. Zine Machine, a production of local print mavens Bill Fick, Bill Brown, and Everett Rand, debuted at the Durham Armory last year, drawing a reported 500 people to buy from and trade with 150 printed-matter makers from far and wide. Just as many share their wares this year, including underground comics legends like Mary Fleener and Pat Moriarity and local leaders like Internationalist Books and Duke zine librarian Kelly Wooten. It's a sign of the ongoing renaissance, in an age of homogenous online self-expression, of what the festival's caretakers call "small-batch, self-published, personal, non-corporate, handmade printed matter of all kinds." —Brian Howe
