Painting zine . . .

October 4, 2006

A group of Honours students in the painting workshop have produced their own zine, titled (at last notice) dot dot dot. Consisting purely of drawings photocopied in both colour and black & white, they saved their text for the cover, which was set in metal type and printed using letterpress in the Book Studio.

The zine artists were: Tim Price, Erik Krebs-Schade, Tiffany Cole, Kalina Pilat, and Della Jackson. The project was co-ordinated by Raquel Ormella of the Painting Workshop with printing help from Caren Florance of the Book Studio.

The zine was produced in an edition of about 270, and was launched at the Zine Fair of the 2006 This Is Not Art festival in Newcastle.
