And Other Book-Like Things

When planning a visit to a new city, I’m the girl who will find a reason to add the local public library to the itinerary. Book nerd 👉 right here. It’s amazing how many libraries now have maker spaces, public art, interesting architecture, board games to try, and used books for sale. And if you’re lucky (like we were when we visited the Austin Public Library on our last trip), there’ll even be a zine section.

I’ve always loved books and been in awe of book art, so my attraction to zines (once I was introduced) wasn’t surprising. I have a nice collection of my own now and have even tried making a few in the past, but I’ve really been wanting to buckle down and follow through with more of the zine ideas that are just sitting around on lists…

This year, I’ll be trying for one zine or little booklet for every month. (Read about my other artsy goal for 2021 here.)
