Last Last Sunday was the Piccadilly Self Publishing Fair. It was a very typical Manchester rainy day but stall holders and visitors came regardless!
It was a brilliant day and Sophie Lee and I met so many new artists that I will hopefully have the good fortune to meet again and maybe even collaborate with in the future...
Also last week was the Piccadilly Self Publishing Exhibition, a week long exhibition following the Piccadilly Self Publishing Fair. We showcased self published works by the likes of Ultimate Holding Company, Lucy May Schofield, Kitty Dunne, Parlour Press, Preston Is My Paris and Article Magazine.
Salford Zine Library also joined us in our empty shop unit with some of their 12000 zines!
We had plenty of visitors which was reassuring as we hadnt been able to afford to print posters or flyers. The power of the internet seemed to have done the trick!
Here is a full list of the stall holders that came and sold stuff at the fair...
