When I stepped into the Canzine West Festival at the Ukrainian Hall last weekend I was instantly overwhelmed by the array of choices. Where to go first? My strategy was to visit all of the tables before making a decision about which zines to collect. A zine fair is like being in a candy store. One could easily end up with a sore stomach and an empty wallet without this approach. With so many varieties, how do you choose? My own personal decisions are based on the aesthetics of a zine. I am the type of connoisseur who likes to enjoy the zine in its entirety after purchasing it. As a bookmaker, I also love the idea of containment. If there is a special nuance in the packaging, I am sold.
