Join the UNT Libraries and the UNT Pride Alliance for Queer Zine Week! This workshop by Spencer Keralis and Courtney Jacobs of the UNT Libraries will teach participants how to hand-sew their own zines using pamphlet stitch, a traditional non-adhesive binding for hand-made books. Participants will get to make their own book, and have the chance to place their zine in the Queer Zine Archive Project and the Denver Zine Library.
Spencer Keralis is Research Associate Professor and Digital Humanities Coordinator with the Public Services Division of the UNT Libraries. He is a book historian who also teaches book arts - most recently at ShareDenver, a DIY coworking space. He is also the editor and publisher of Laughing Mouse Press, a micro press that specializes in limited edition runs of hand-made books.
Courtney Jacobs the Special Collections Librarian at the UNT Libraries. She's also a mother, and the volunteer food blogger and recipe librarian for Cardo’s Farm Project. Her interest in rare books and food converge in her research on 19th century cookbooks as an acceptable arena for early feminist cultural reform.
The workshop is free and open to the public. So we can anticipate numbers, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
