2 pm – 4 pm | From Zines to Offset – Let’s Talk About Books! #ADAYINSOUTHTOWN
October 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Swordfish Islands is an independent publisher of table top role playing games. They got their start blogging and making zines, and have gone on to run three successful Kickstarter campaigns and print over 10,000 hard cover books!
Jacob, one of the creators of Swordfish Islands, will talk a little about publishing your own books independently, and even tear apart a couple books so you can see how they’re made! You’ll also be able to see original artwork from Swordfish Islands’ newest book “The Tomb of Black Sand”. Then we’ll make coloring book zines with gold or silver foil on their cover, and fold up miniature book “signatures”.
The plan is to do two sessions (from 2:00pm – 3:00pm and 3:00pm – 4:00pm), but if the studio’s open, stop by and make a coloring book and book signature!
