BANGKOK — What’s old is new again at an event next month mixing retro and pop culture with personal expression and the intoxicating scent of drying ink.

Following its first issue at The Jam Factory in December, Make A Zine is back in circulation again for paper-and-ink people to get busy in the Bangkok self-publishing-mosphere, this time in the historic Phra Nakhon neighborhood.

Hosted by A Day Magazine, the highlights of the free event include a zine workshop for 50 registered participants and a Zine Swap for indie publishers to exchange their mini-mags and experiences with others.

In the Zine Library, check out handmade books of all genres from around Thailand and the world, from punk rock politics to whatever.

Building on last year’s event, find controversial and/or adult content in the new 18+ Exhibition. Meanwhile artists, illustrators, writers and photographers will sell their pubs in the Zine Shop.

Food, drinks and desserts will be sold from stalls located near the zine scene.

The all-day fest runs 2pm to 10pm on July 2 at Museum Siam. Located on Sanamchai Road, it can be reached by walking from Yodpiman River Walk or the Tha Tien pier.
