From Dondoro by Estelle Hanania & Hoichi Okamoto, published by Kaugummi, 2011, 48 pages, FR/EN, full colour offset, 1000 copies - click to enlarge

If you happen to find yourself in Chicago tomorrow evening: This is an event not to be missed as one of my very favourite French publishers of small press is having a retrospective displaying more than 70 zines from their 7-year publishing history.

If you've never heard of Kaugummi Books, you obviously haven't been paying attention to this blog and I suggest you go stand in a corner and think about what you've done.


From It's My Life by Aleksandra Waliszewska, published by Kaugummi, 2010, 20 pages, black and white on pink paper, 100 copies, handnumbered - click to enlarge

For all others: The event will take place at Golden Age from 6 - 9 PM tomorrow and I highly suggest you show up with a few bucks to support independent publishing.

Venue details below.
