new zines!

Okay so I spent more time behind the table then out looking at zine type things this kazoo! Print Expo. These two zines are from the folks that tabled next to me. Radical Self Healing was from Thigh High Club house who tabled next to me. Its a great zine made by Jessica Montebello. The other is a zine I got from Gillian Manford (you know her from the dwtn public library where she works as a clerk) and is about Canada and all its glimmer and glammer, long roads, roads that lead to the north to the west and to the east.  Look fer reviews of these zines soon! all in all Kazoo! Print Expo was alright, it wasn't shitty and well it wasn't amazing I am glad to have met the folks I tabled next to and as a result my personal disto "Look Mum!" made some sweet trades! Oh, and the Arrow Archive had a lollipop pull to raise funds which it did, mmmm sweets

long time no post

It's been a very long time that I have posted anything here on the Arrow Archive blog, since December. Over the winter break I had all these dreams of catching up on inputting zines in to the library data base, organizing the boxes and creating anew blog for my own distro (Look Mum!) and now that it's almost mid February I gotta get back on track. Over the Winter break we had lots of donations and I'll get them catalogued soon and if there are any real goodies I'll post them here. 
What the heck have I have been up to? Well other then getting The Hissing Goose back on track, a few pals and I have organized a Zine Club, evey month we hangout share a zine we made that month and eat snacks. It's pretty fun and a great way to scare away the winter blues. Zine Club!

Kazoo! Print Expo 2014!

Just received a a call out for Guelph's Kazoo Print Fest. If you wanna table that day drop them a line:

Dear Zine Club

Dear Zine Club,
I love you.....
If you didn't know it but a few folks in Guelph have started a zine club. Members have decided to  challenge each other by making a zine a month for a whole year, pictured above are a few of the zines that were made for the first month including the Zine Club passport made by zine club member Sirens of a Violent Storm Press. The Passport is super exciting because Guelph zine club has added some extra challenges to making a zine a month and inside the passport you can keep track of challenges you have met. Zine Club Guelph was inspired by Zine Club Hamilton who have just about finished their first year of zine making, will they continue to make zines for another year? I hope so!
