New In: Nous Magazine #3: The Renaissance Issue

I think I picked this very nicely printed risograph zine up at Takk the other day. The blurb on their Facebook says:

"NOUS is a Manchester based project dealing with all what lies within but often is covered up. It is about the things we try to hide and should say out loud. NOUS is you, your friends and the stranger in the streets.

We will give young creatives a platform for their inspiring work and also make mind culture and everything that comes with it gain centre stage in our everyday life again."

New In: Some zines by zine-it-yourself!

You might remember that we took the zine library collection to Darlington a few weeks ago. We'll have a more in-depth blog post about that in a week or so, when we've sorted through the photos and things like that.

Mike from zine-it-yourself was kind enough to second weekend of the exhibition at the shop in Darlington doing a really fun looking observational typewriting thing which was very popular, by all accounts. You can read his blog post about it here.

He also posted us some zines that he'd made last year, and here they are! They're in the library right now, so pop in and have a look. There's lots of illustrations and comics and words and things like that in them.

New In: Loads of zines

Here's another big bundle of zines that have been donated to us recently! Thanks so much for sending these in. They're already on the shelves for you to read so pop in and have a look. There hasn't been a count of the collection recently and it'd be interesting to see just how many we have now. 

We're hoping to get the shelving improved a little bit in the near future so when we have to clear the shelves we'll probably have a little count. Maybe we could have some kind of competition?
