LOVE/HATE at Makeshift Brooklyn

We’re delighted to roll out another event in collaboration with Makeshift Society in Brooklyn next month. If you’re in the area and love small, hand-crafted publications, this should be right up your alley.

We’ll have a Risograph printer onsite at Makeshift’s Brooklyn space on February 18, and will spend the evening making pages for a collaboratively-produced zine along the post-Valentine’s theme of “LOVE/HATE.” The zine will print in a small run that very night, so you’ll get to take one home with you at the end of the event.

The evening will kick off with a brief talk from graphic designer and Gratuitous Type publisher Elena Schlenker. Gerardo Madera of Common Satisfactory Standard will share his expert printing advice as you design your page for the zine.

Tickets will be available on EventBrite beginning February 4, and the $10 event charge also covers the beer and food that’ll be on hand from Yakitorious Inglorius.

What better way to work out that post-Valentine’s-Day creative angst, right? Check the Makeshift Society page for directions and other details. Hope to see you there!
