The response to ink+PAPER has been amazing – thanks to everyone to sent good wishes for the magazine’s future. Preparations for the first issue continue apace, but the esteemed contributors are busy people. Here are a few things that they are involved in currently:
The Comix Reader: the launch party for issue #2 of this excellent alternative newsprint comic is next week at The Miller in London (details at this FB event). i+P contributors Elliot Baggott, Barnaby Richards, Julia Homersham and Ellen Lindner all have stories in this issue and it’s a lovely thing to behold.
Tom Humberstone recently announced the line-up for Solipsistic Pop #4, the high quality anthology project he’s edited for the past few years. Among other comic favourites featured are i+Pers Lizz Lunney, Dan Berry, Philippa Rice and Joe Decie. SolPop is always a beautiful book and Tom’s commitment to the art of the printed object is inspirational.
Speaking of Lizz Lunney, she’s one of the organisers of the Birmingham Zine Festival taking place on July 9th (details here). Dan Berry, David O’Connell and Timothy Winchester will be in attendance at what looks to be a great event – do come along and say hello.
