The galaxy of fanzines

As countercultures emerged in the United States in the 60’s, the #mimeograph, an archaic and totally outdated machine, became the tool of choice for young people to bypass government censorship and disseminate revolutionary ideas, create communities, and share fanfiction. This was the 1960s internet.

Maya Strobbe /Ramsdam Books Single Copies Presentation

Maya-ramsdam books

Maya Strobbe has been publishing zines and artists’ publications as RAMSDAM BOOKS since 2016. An important aspect of their practice as an artist, book designer and publisher is experiment and playfulness. To keep things fresh, they have the habit of making single copies. Single copies are experiments, adaptations of previously published books or prototypes. The focus when making a single copy is not on success but on exploring new materials and techniques, developing ideas, listening to intuition and having good old fun.

On August 20th Maya will open up their archive of single copies and present their bookmaking experiments from the last three years.
