Amelia Garretson-Persans' zines, which feature drawings and inscriptions that are both sweet and psychedelic, will be available, as will Kale Edmiston and Brian Thompson's queer punk zines, Laura Matthews' miniature book jewelry, selections from the Nashville Origami Club, handmade blank books, limited-edition chapbooks, and more.
I thought that was a pretty wide array of work for one event to swallow, but in reality there was much, much more. Indie comics, gorgeous offerings from Plateone Print Shop, a selection of antique books from the collection of artist Mary Addison Hackett, zines from The Owl Farm, and the Grilled Cheeserie parked out front. Look through the photos Scene photog Michael Bunch took below.
Familiar Relics, the art exhibit that was organized as part of the event, will be open through Oct. 20, and a closing panel discussion will take place on Oct. 19. Zine-O-Rama is still on display in the library throughout the month.
