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.

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.

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

Crosta Brava

Crosta Brava is the name of the last photozine from Carles Palacio, a photographer from Girona we already work with in two previous zines: Capitalismo Barbarie and Agno3.


This work, relates to a summary of a previous long (and on-going) work of "shoots of the territory" with different atmospheres, climates and geographies. This one, specifically focused on Costa Brava, the north coast of Catalonia, a beautifull and also damaged coast, with two important natural parks: Cap de Creus and Illes Medes.


You will also notice another natural environment, located a little far from the coast but still in the same line of sight as the other images: the lake of banyoles.


The title is a pun. “Crosta” (Crust) and “Costa” (Coast) have practically the same pronunciation in catalan, but crosta sounds more forceful, unromantic and, sometimes, even rude. Brave Crust.

VA/BF 2014

Vancouver skyline from Stanley park

Views of the city from the Vancouver Lookout


Two weeks ago we were at the Vancouver Art/Book Fair, a event produced by Project Space that has completely consolidated as the most interesting fair on the NW Pacific coast.

Last year, we sent some photozines and this year, some of you could see them exhibited in one of the Vancouver Art Gallery floors, exactly at the New Understandings of Space. But we weren't satisfied, so this year we decided to go with all the available material (specially new stuff) and say hi to all the people in Vancouver! Here a photographic resume of the three days of exhibition.

The VA/BF archive: New understandigs of Space

Thanks to everyone, specially to Tracy Stefanucci for the good job with the fair and Ted Feighan for the patience (he was my table-neighbor). Also to all the exhibitors that, at one point or another we exchanged some words (specially the last day at night :D)

Northwestern wild by Paula Prats


In trip to Canada, in a small island near Vancouver, Paula Prats begins a visual narrative story in a subjective way, shooting all the incidents that happen around focusing on elements that make the place unique.



Sunbeams through the trees, wooden shelters, the shore and sometimes, the disturbing presence of somebody hiding his face are an example of this enigmatic story Paula tries to show.


Northwestern wild is the name of this first photozine we published from Paula Prats, a young valencian highly motivated photographer with a solid experience and several collective and individual exhibitions throughout the world. You can use our online shop here to buy one, or check our usual bookstores.


With the first 50 photozines, we include a free mini booklet printed by Do The Print, a nice risography studio in Barcelona who rightly suggested that flower seeds paper to print the booklet. Hurry, after the presentation of the photozine in the Gutter Fest, we only have a few!
