4 zines for Wellington Zinefest market January 2022

Four small Rachel McAlpine photobooklets: Think a new thought ($15), Good Morning, Earth! ($15), Wonky Lockdown Diary ($15) and Almost Old: Baby Steps to a Good Old Age ($10). Images of pastel bouncy castle, cat with morning sky, mystified old lady, and circus tent with old people doing stuff.
Great lineup of zines at the Wellington Zinefest 2022! including four from me, Rachel McAlpine

Check out all the unique, cool, weird, radical and queer DIY zines at the Wellington Zinefest market January 2022 including mine on Saturday 29 January.

Rachel McAlpine (moi) is better known as a poet or (previously) digital content professional. But in my spare time I make little booklets of my cartoons or photos, sometimes with a few mysterious words. It’s my hobby 🙂 I thought I’d share them and where better than at the Wellington Zinefest market on 29 January 2022?

Text: Wellington ZineFest Jan 29 & 30
Come to Wellington Zinefest at 139 Vivian Street from 12.00am-4.00pm

I’ll be there on the SATURDAY 29 JANUARY only. Heaps of brilliant artists and cartoonists and poets and activists will be showing and selling their work. You won’t believe your eyes. (That’s an opinion, not a promise.)

Sharing my table: Margaret Austin, fun poet

A wild woman with mouth wide open reading from a stapled booklet, "Digital Ditties.)

Margaret’s poetry books are skinny and funny, and you never know, she might read you one of her poems if you ask nicely.

See you at the Wellington Zinefest Market on Saturday afternoon, 29 January—in other words very soon.
