Special Programs


Saturday Jul 14, 2007 6:00 PM This is a past program

Enter the fascinating, diverse and plucky world of do-it-yourself publications. A selection of talented LA ’zinesters will set up shop in the courtyard alongside local purveyors of independent publications from across the USA. Participants include ANP Quarterly, Family, Eve Fowler, Insert Press, Journal of Aesthetics & Protest, Christopher Russell, 2nd Cannons Publications, Skylight Books, Esther Pearl Watson & Mark Todd. . . and more! 

Browse vendor booths and pick up affordable, handmade, and limited-edition chapbooks, mini-comics, artists’ books, journals, and ’zines. Sit in on a panel discussion moderated by Aaron Rose (publisher of the free arts and culture magazine ANP Quarterly and curator of the traveling exhibition Beautiful Losers), focusing on the importance of independent publishing in today’s corporate media–driven world. Sample international confections from Heartschallenger while listening to music specially made for their pink ice cream truck. Get wild with LA’s indie rock glam extravaganza Sounds of Asteroth—live on stage! 

‘Zineland is organized by Hammer programs coordinator Darin Klein. 


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation and Mimi and Werner Wolfen. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, Erika Glazer, and an anonymous donor.
