SummaryJoin us for a guided tour of “From the Archives of ZAPP (Zine Archive and Publishing Project) in the Level 8 Gallery at the Central Library.
DescriptionZAPP, the Zine Archive & Publishing Project, was a volunteer-run organization dedicated to preserving and promoting self-publishing in Seattle and beyond. Originally part of Richard Hugo House (who donated the collection to the Library), ZAPP collected and maintained a library of over 30,000 zines, minicomics and other self-published and small press titles.

“From the Archives of ZAPP” showcases a small fraction of the cultural treasures found in the ZAPP zine collection, focusing on locally made zines and self-published comics, riot grrrl zines, zines representing voices from traditionally marginalized communities, and zines featuring unique and creative design elements.

A Seattle Public librarian who helped curate this exhibit will be in the Gallery to guide visitors through the exhibit and answer questions. The exhibit tour will be followed by a brief visit to the ZAPP zine collection, located on Level 7 directly across from the elevators.

The exhibit is on view from July 15 through August 31, 2019 and is accessible during the Central Library’s open hours.
NotesLibrary events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.
