CHIPRC’s Zine Club: Through the Lens Edition, at Quimby’s!

Aug
13
7:00 pm

From vintage daguerreotypes and Polaroids to strips of photo booth selfies and digitally altered images, the pages of zines provide an excellent frame for photographs of all kinds. This month at our book club-style event for people who read zines, we’ll be talking about our favorite titles that focus on photos. Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are welcome to join us for a fun discussion and snacks.

If you’d like to participate in our Mystery Zine Swap, bring a zine (concealed in some way) to trade with someone else on the spot!

CHIPRC’s Zine Club is produced by Chicago Zine Fest organizer Cynthia E. Hanifin.

Tues, Aug 13th, 7pm
