I’m not really part of the zine scene. Or am I? I don’t really think of myself as a filmmaker, but I make films, so I guess I’m a filmmaker. For many years I was reluctant to call myself an artist, but I make art, so I guess I’m an artist. And now I made a zine, so I guess I’m a zinester, and Black Daffodil Press is a distro?
Either way, it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that I will be selling my wares at Sheffield Zine Fest 2013 as Black Daffodil Press and you should come and see me and the other stalls at the first outing of this event at Electric Works, across the road from Sheffield rail station.
There was a one-off Sheffield Zine Fair in 2011 but it doesn’t seem to have continued so Chella Quint and Bettie Walker have organised Sheffield Zine Fest 2013.
Anyway, I will be there selling my “World X- A Speculative History” book, and the first two packs of my Retrospective flyers.
I will also have a couple of things from other artists, a newspaper / artzine by James Price, and maybe a few bits and bobs from veteran art-zinester M. A. Longbottom (more about him soon).
If you can’t make it to the zine fest, “World X” is on sale at The Old Sweet Shop and Rare & Racy, both in Sheffield, UK, and I will be opening an online shop with various publications and merch before long.
Here are a few additional google-randomised links that I have nothing to do with. I’ll add more links to this post and also on Black Daffodil Press as and when.
