Barbara Ryan curates Girls + Zines at Tatty Devine

 

Here's Barbara Ryan of BFR Mag in front of the wall of zines she's created for our new Brick Lane boutique show, Girls + Zines (2011). We wanted to showcase the work of all the female zinesters out there who create and compile home-made magazines to share their thoughts, obsessions and lives.

Spanning a wide range of publications featuring anything from offbeat illustrations and collage to heartfelt musings and humorous revelations, Girls + Zines celebrates the originality of female zinesters. Not only can zine enthusiasts browse our pop-up zine library, while sitting on comfy beanbags, there is also the chance to bring your own publications to display and swap at the in-store zine exchange! Barbara's hung all the zines on pegs on the wall, so bring along your own zine, find a spare peg, and become part of the show. Got a zine you want to show off but can't make it to London? Just post your zine to: Girls + Zines, Tatty Devine, 236 Brick Lane, London, E2 7LH. (Entries now closed.)

 

BFR Mag

 

All featured zines will be archived at the Women's Library after the show and zine converts can pick up a copy of BFR Mag and other publications at Tatty Devine Brick Lane. Come along and celebrate the original and inspiring handiwork of girls who zine - just don't forget your reading glasses!

 

Find out more about our love of zines, art and strong female role models in our Misshapes: The Making of Tatty Devine book, celebrating over 20 years of irreverent design.
