ZINES OF THE ZONE is a nomadic, not-for-profit library dedicated to self-published photobooks, photozines, and any DIY printed matter related to photography. The project’s aim, started in January 2014, is to create a European network and generate a public collection to be displayed around. After 48 crowded events around Europe, and more than 700 books donated, we are proud to host the last stop of their tour in London during the STRAYBOOKS FESTIVAL.
Straybooks is a free 2 days mini festival with a focus on photo zines and independent photobooks, rooted in DIY practice. Launched by AkinaBooks, this first edition supports the young publishing scene with independent publishing houses as well as self-published and DIY books.
