‘Zine in a day

Last weekend saw the first International Alternative Press Festival take place in London, bringing together a host of illustrators, independent publishers, ‘zine makers and comics fans.

As well as stalls from the likes of Duke Press and illustrator Gareth Brookes (whose ‘zine Sherlock Holmes vs Skeletor is definitely worth a peep), there were a number of talks and workshops covering the history of fanzines and the radical press.

The Leeds-based Footprinters Workers Co-op creates a ‘Zine-in-a-day’, which, as the name would suggest, was entirely planned, printed and assembled on the Saturday of the fair.

For a publication entirely constructed in a day, there’s some cute artwork – ranging from zany illustrations to traditional photocopy collage. The process itself, with its whirring photocopiers and eager artists, was a great spectacle in itself. Take a look at some of the work produced below.
