|Fwd: Conversations, Spirituality, D-I-Y, Zines & Punk Rock - a very special event...||Susy Pow!||8/12/10 7:26 PM|
Introducing the Paper Cuts Collective and inviting you to a very special unique event at the Bleeding Heart Art Gallery. Please find information attached. Any help you could give us to spread the word is appreciated! :)
The Paper Cuts Collective are both zine lovers & creators. We’re focused on sharing our love of zines with the world--one little folded, stapled/hand bound number at a time.
By combining our powers and collectively focusing on strengthening the QLD zine and independent publishing community (and beyond) we strive to promote diverse d.i.y. created works and look forward to providing networking opportunities for zine makers & lovers to help strengthen channels of communication. In the near future we hope to facilitate/assist with collaborative initiatives and new distribution outlets and to help coordinate zine fairs.
We understand the importance of zines and are committed to keeping the vital art form alive. The PCC have 35-years of zine making experience between them.
In a very special event Thursday September 2 PCC co-founders Bianca Valentino, Staples and Matt Limmer launch their latest creations:

II. WHENEVER I SEE A BEARDED HOBO ON THE STREET, I’LL THINK OF YOU AND SMILE (Staples)
Three months of adventures in the Land of the Golden Arches, Capitalism and that Scandal of the American Dream. "Whenever I See A Bearded Hobo On The Street, I'll Think Of You And Smile" is a travel zine including interviews, tales, photos and notes while on the road.
III. DEMOLISH 6 (Limmer)
Pieced together by Brisbane graphic designer and artist Matt Limmer, Demolish 6 is a work in progress of over 2 years—ever changing until the print deadline. It is an indefinable implosion of
art by friends close and far. Featuring work by prolific Townsville painters Shane "Trouble" Keen, Johnny B, Clint Searston and Doug Arana, Brisbane artists Angela Hughes and Jonathan Tse and writing by Sydney "beatnik" author Nathan Roche. Released as a limited edition handmade book.
Come help us celebrate zines, art, music, d.i.y. culture and creativity. The exhibition will feature art and photography complimenting the works and telling the story of each projects journey.
More details to be announced shortly.
