Self-Made: Zines and Artists Books – A touring exhibition from State Library of Victoria

Celebrate the power of self-publishing to communicate directly with readers, create community, and support counter-culture movements.  Self-publishing empowers makers of all abilities and backgrounds to become creative producers, challenge dominant models, and make work that anyone can appreciate and collect.

State Library Victoria has one of the finest collections of artist books and zines in Australia and Self-made showcases original rare objects from the collection, as well as a selection of contemporary zines and artists books.  Discover science fiction fanzines from the 1940s, ground-breaking 1970s punk zines, Australian underground press publications and artists books designed to circumvent commercial gallery systems.
