Tenderete 9: photos

Here the pictures you were all waiting for. Well, maybe not everybody, but shows a little bit what we did in València those days, the city with three really important things: paella, Escif's street art (read interview in spanish here) and Tenderete.

We took the paella the first day. We didn't want to leave this for the last day, so here the first picture.

In La Llimera, we arrived just in time to hear Ceferino Galán and the adventures of the most important fanzines in Spain: El Naufraguito.

Between the speeches, we had time to check the exhibition: NÃO HÁ DESCANSO PARA OS MORTO by Oficina Arara, from Portugal.

Then, there was another speech with Garikoitz Fraga (Belleza Infina), César Sanchez (Fulgencio Pimentel) and David Schilter (Kus Komikss). We left before the end, we were too tired.

Doors open the first day! Lots of people on the first day.

People like to watch our stuff.

Paula Prats, from València, came to visit us. Super-quickly we had a chance to shoot a picture with his fanzine: Northwestern Wild.

Nice desk with Mazo Comics and Jose jajaja + Ru Hongwu 

People.

On the front desk, amazing collage El Problema and Carinio Ediciones

Do the print and Lindero libros very excited to hear their numbers for the breadbox full of comics and music. 

But no, any of the 3 breadbox were for us. Next year make sure you but all of them folks!

Fanzinant

Eneka Fernández and Sara Fernández where working together during five years, and all this time they discovered the passion of self-publishing, photography and fanzines.


Now, with all this experience during all this years, they created Fanzinant, a way to show their love for this world. They don’t only show the extensive collection they own (in a nice and clean website), they also write about them, they talk about some interesting fairs focused in self-publishing and cities where you can find nice shops to buy and have a look at this kind of stuff we love.

Photo from the website / Photobook fair in Buenos Aires, August 2014

They have a Facebook fanpage, a like to their page could be something nice to do, no?

FLIA 2014: brief description.

The last October was eventful. The same weekend we were at the Vancouver Art/Book Fair, we were also at the second edition of FLIA. (See pictures of the last year here.)

The desk. With a flag from Slovakia as a tablecloth.

It was a very warm day, but thanks to the good faith of the girls from Lindero Libros (Noe Lavado and Helena Rovira) we could manage to fit under a sunshade. On the other side of the table we were nicely accompanied by Ignacio Navas, who was selling his last photozine «Yolanda». An amazing publication.

The girls that handdle Lindero Libros.

Overall, considering all the publishers who came and the people who attended the event, we think it’s right to think that FLIA has already become one of the major fairs to consider in the world of self-publishing.

Tropèl and his "tunning carriage".

And yes, there was some cool street music too. Thanks to all who made it possible.
