Tinderbox zine



Calling ALL Tinderbox members and followers!!! YES that means YOU!
We are producing a tinderbox promotional zine to be sold (for a nominal price to cover costs) at the exhibition and maybe a few book shops around Dublin thereafter. I would love to have as many of you involved as possible. Even if you haven't posted before, now is not the time to be shy.

It will be A5 and black and white. Other than that it's totally free format. Anything you have to show, finished or unfinished, old or new, is all embraced with open arms! If it's a physical piece that you need scanned, contact me in advance of the deadline, which is 14th October.

Please comment here publicly if you're interested in taking part.
Submissions to: tinderboxnetwork@gmail.com
Deadline: 14th October 2009

im going to sound totally un-with-it here but whats a promotional zine? :)

Toma Lione said...

Great Stuff, KLR!

A zine is a little booklet type thing. Cheap to re-produce, small number of copies produced. Ours will have mostly images. It will probably have a small paragraph of text in the inside cover and reference to our blog but other than that it's like an art piece.
Send me some of your lovely work!

I'll send you on some work asap claire! Just a few questions: What format would you like it in? Grayscale tif maybe? And how many pieces would you like us to submit?

Claire said...

Send as much or as little as you like, individual pieces or fully designed spreads, it's totally up to you.
Format: Jpeg / tiff / pdf
As high res as possible.
Grayscale or colour is fine. It will be printed greyscale.

Hi again! It´s A5, landscape, like the cover, right?

Claire said...

A5 portrait, like a little book. It's going to be made up of folded a4s if that make sense.

Claire said...

If anybody has stuff to send now, in advance of the deadline that'd be great.
