Mac's desk: about now?

Mac's desk: about now?
14 June 2011

I have to wind back the clock 24 hrs as I'm not zine cataloguing today. Yesterday though; I had the pleasure of working on APiTO, an item in the Henderson Collection. This zine was dated December 1993. From Rockhampton and a distro to boot!! Music and punk rock band interviews/reviews, zine reviews and just to make it more interesting there are 2 more siblings in the collection. I got to read issues 14, 18 and 19. Here's the link so you can have a look: http://nla.gov.au/nla.cat-vn5055900 All in all very nostalgic for me. From a collectors perspective, zines are still constructed in a very similar way to 1993. Typewriters, photocopiers, photos and  drawn illustrations all combine to bring a freshness and immediacy to a zine, sucking the reader into the time it was written and taking you along for a ride to the back page. What fun!
