We asked small press comics and zine creators to come up with a flier for the Alternative Press Fair ( 13th Feb St Aloysius Social Club NW1 1TA) the only stipulation was that it had to utilise everyones fave art material, the blue biro! On the day of the festival the images will be used in a poster visitors will be able to screen print themselves!
In the lead up to the Fair we’ll be posting some of our favorites, so without further ado, first up is
and last but not least
Its now only 3 weeks to the Alternative Press Fair and excitement is begining to build!
It’s going to be a completely FREE event celebrating all things self-published and DIY.
Comics and Zines, Radical Literature, Poetry, Printmaking, Book Arts and even a bit of DIY Fashion will come together in this carnival of modern cottage industry!
There will be a huge variety of things to see and do, including collaborative drawing and live screen printing where you can make your own poster of the day.
In the evening there will be a party to celebrate the first birthday of the Alternative Press Fair with an open mic night for all comers to try, also featuring poetry, spoken word and music. So come along and help us blow out the candles!
