Dear friends of the PCA,
To coincide with the June Issue of IMPRINT, which is themed ‘Artists Books’, The Print Council of Australia is encouraging its members and friends to produce zines in an enormous random zine exchange.
A zine [short for magazine] is indeed a small ‘booklet’, most often photocopied and stapled and can be filled with your writing- story, poetry, musings, and/ or your drawing, doodling, photographs, and is quite ephemeral in its nature. For example, I have come across ‘fan zines’, filled with musings on peoples favourite macaroons, recipes, journal entries describing the baking process, lists of people they gave the macaroons to.
It can be a personal story or factual observations, written or illustrative, the content is entirely up to you, our only requirement is in order to include the zine in the postage of Imprint, we need the zine to be small and lightweight. [Finished size: no larger than A6- 10.5 x 15cm. Up to 16 pages- = 2 x A4 sheets cut and folded.]
[And we ask that the content not be offensive in any way to a broad audience.]
If you google zines you will come across many examples- and wikipedia has quite a comprehensive definition and history of the "zine".
I hope you can let this information ruminate and I’m sure you will come up with some great ideas to put in a zine, If you can produce an edition of 15 [or 30 would be even better] zines [by photocopying] and post them to us, we would love to have them. They can be left unsigned if you prefer anonymity, or you can use a pseudonym, or of course you can sign them.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact, and as we need 1400 zines in total, please encourage your friends to make an edition for us too.
Please post as many zines as you can to me at the address below before March the 31st.
I thankyou in advance,

Field Study International
April 4 – Sept. 5
National Art Library Entrance
Field Study began in 1993 started by David Dellafiora, Eamon Kirwan and Benedict Phillips. During the following years, artists from different countries joined the initiative, becoming a truly international group. One of their main aims is that everyone is welcome to become a member, irrespective of their arts practice, and to contribute. Field Study sees work by individual artists as emanations and collective work as manifestations and was originally influenced by the Surrealist and Fluxus movements.
The annual Field Study International Journal was their first publication, but throughout the years the group has developed new assembling periodicals such as WIPE, ReSite and in collaboration with the Australian Disability Support Service Karingal - KART. A selection of this material will be on show.
Also on display there will be works by Erica Van Horn, Patricia Collins and Benedict Phillips as the ‘Agresiv Dislecksick’, with artwork revolving around his dyslexia. He will be giving a special lunchtime lecture on Wednesday July 27 in the V&A Sackler Centre.
