The Stall Holders

We are now taking bookings for Leeds Zine Fair 2017!

We have space for around 60 stalls, so this is going to be quite the zine extravaganza!

Hayley Wells

Hayley Wells is currently studying at Cambridge School of Art where she creates books and zines exploring modern life, loneliness, and the human-animal relationship. Being a bit of a punk at heart, Hayley has a strong DIY ethos that forms the basis of her working process. Her work is often subversive and incorporates her vegan anarchist politics, but sometimes she just loves drawing cats.

Big Brown Eyes

We are Big Brown Eyes - an illustration and comics collective of three sisters: Emily, Karis and Freya Lambert.
Together we make zines and short comics along with cute knick-knacks and jewellery. 
We also create an annual collaborative anthology, which this year will feature emerging illustrators and comic artists alongside our own work.

man flag shandy cover crop

Brained by two brothers from Huddersfield, Man-Flag Shandy zine is a void so lacking in comprehension-of-self that its emptiness ultimately reaches out, tickles your nose and tells you to mind where you go.

Their first issue documents its own birth, then (like all of us) struggles as it attempts to understand who why where how and what the fuck it is, stumbling along in a confused world of truth and falsity as it tries and fails to be the magazine society wants it to be.

They welcome questions at the fair.

King Louis Lab

We have been self-publishing comics in London for the last year but have been producing work for the last four. We collaborate at every stage of the process when making comics and have been fitting in twenty-five hours a week around our A-levels. Our first release was the one hundred page graphic novel ‘Strange Road to Fairview’ which told the story of a friendship between a man and a moth. More recently we’ve released ‘Cheeky Monkey’ the story of a simple-minded man-ape who slowly unravels a mystery. This was a much bigger release as the hundred copies we had of ‘Strange Road to Fairview’ sold out very quickly meaning we increased the quantity to six hundred copies. We are both eighteen years old and are focusing on comic illustration from nine to five for the next year. We’re exhibiting at both international and national conventions over the next year and would love to add Leeds to our calendar. At the convention we will be selling ‘Cheeky Monkey’ as well as related merchandise and original art.

harriet cash zine

I make little zines about queer feminism and my pop lady sheroes, many of them inspired by chats with rad women at the Feminist Library in London. I'm also working with a bunch of brilliant grrrls on a bigger zine about women and work - having it, not having it, and dealing with people while doing it. It's going to be angry and ranty and hopefully pretty funny.
