London Zine Symposium

I discovered this Zine fair/event and read an interesting review about it by Amelia magazine-
A big event where artists/makers/doers are able to sell there self publications and discover other artists and collaborators alike.

Part of this Zine fair, I discover Katie Green has a blog and have started following it. I really like her illustrations and ideas for Zine content.

'The Green Bean is really an extension of my blog, and each issue is packed with seasonal recipes, what-I-wore drawings, book reviews, maps, comics, collaborations with other illustrators, collections, obersvational drawings and lots more'

Available on etsy- http://www.etsy.com/shop/katiegreen?section_id=6252715

I like the browny paper and green ribbon package detail, inkeeping with the content of the zine!

Another Zine stall-

It is a specific audience interest, this collective shows the success of these self publications and and an expanding industry.
