Dozens of local creators of zines—books or magazines made in small editions using DIY methods—gathered at the Stevens Square Center for the Arts on Saturday morning for Twin Cities Zinefest, an annual event that’s become so popular it’s outgrown the venue and will move in 2011 to a yet-to-be-determined location. Zine conoisseurs crowded the aisles while event coordinator Sarah Morean emceed a sequence of zine readings in the corner of the room. I bought a book of ironic portrait photos (its creator apologized for charging the relatively astronomical zine price of ten dollars) and a comic cookbook in which the food talks sarcastically back to the cook as he’s preparing it. Zine heaven.
