So I guess I have enough reading material to keep me going for a few years or so. It was a good day out, I had fun. Got to meet a whole bunch of people, some of who said "oh yeah, I read your blog", or were stoked to see I had a new issue out. It was nice to meet the people behind Useless Lines and Bird In The Hand zine shop.
It was my first zine fair, but I don't think it will be my last appearance. I'm liking the idea of going to the TiNA (This is Not Art) zine fair in Newcastle in October. I heard a couple of people talking about it, it sounds like a bit of a pinnacle of the zine fair experience.
By that time I might finally get around to making a footbag zine, it's something I've been meaning to do for so long. Hopefully I can get one done before Worlds, or I might make one based on my trip.
An enjoyable experience anyway, something I would do again for sure.
I took my camera to take some photos of the experience, but I didn't even bother to take it out. Some other people were taking quite a few photos though. Hundreds of people came through the doors of the CCAS which is a very impressive figure.
