Quaranzine Fest was a (cough…) viral concept to connect zine makers and patrons in this turbulent time of social distancing. On April 4th and 5th the hashtag #quaranzinefest was used over 2,200 times on instagram! (At the time of this posting it’s still going with 2,800 posts.) Zine makers from around the world posted, liked, commented, chatted, DM’d, and even BOUGHT ZINES!

is PRESS tabled with our sister imprint Flatlands Press at the 3rd annual Chicago Art Book Fair November 15th – 17th 2019. CABF 2017 was our first Art Book Fair after innumerable zine fests; and, we’ve tabled every year since, growing with it as we all learned to crawl, stand, and walk! Chicago is and will always be our home-away-from-home fair!
After 18 months of DIY architectural drawings, trips to city hall, trench digging, wrangling trades people, our buddy Jim the genius carpenter living in out driveway all winter with his bulldog, painting, playing floor plan Tetris with 500 lb. equipment, and scrubbing drywall dust encrusted grease of our new 10×15 C&P letterpress, is PRESS is FINALLY in a functional space!
