Writer Peter Dornauf recently contributed a review of the exhibition curated by artist Bryce Galloway entitled SMALL PRESS: Zines: Self-Publishing from Australasia. Unfortunately I didn't get to see the show firsthand but I'm familiar with many of the zines that were selected (including those by my daughters Zora, Oki, and Dune!). Dornauf writes of the show:
"From around New Zealand and across the ditch the sheer wealth of material amassed in this show demonstrates that the indie publishing world is alive, well and flourishing. Exhibitions like this and other zine-fests provide a valuable showcase for this burgeoning industry. What mainstream publishers are too cowardly, timid and conservative to print, independents bravely fill the gap and save us from boredom, banality and blandness."
