Micro Shop Launching at The Drawing Room this Spring!
A new collective of artists/book lovers have decided that Edmonton needs a dedicated place for zines and artist books. At the Drawing Room, in the front salon, we are assembling a modest collection of books, zines, and other ephemera. In advance, we’re looking for self-published and/or handmade books of writing and art to fill our shelves... If you sometimes put pictures and words onto paper, you might be interested in submitting that thing you make to be sold at the Drawing Room by consignment.
We are interested in: Flip books; chapbooks; pop-up books; comics; magazines; pamphlets; fold-outs; booklets; newspapers; insta-books; small press publications; zines; hand bound books.
We would like to see:
- Artist’s biography
- 3-5 samples of previous work (Images should be in jpg format, no larger than 1mb each)
- A sample of the project you would like to submit
- Estimated production costs, and retail value of the project
Please consider contributing to the material culture of this new place dedicated to the proliferation and celebration of all things printed. We'd love to hear from you!
Submit your project to our selection committee for review by MARCH 16th to be part of the launch in Spring. We will be accepting applications on an ongoing basis.
Please send your questions and submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
