Manchester Metropolitan University to house new zine collection

You'll notice from the photo that MMU have added a large selection of Future Fantasteek! to get their new zine collection underway, so you can now go a read them in Manchester.

Read more about the MMU collection here...

"From artists books and poster collections, to Victorian ephemera and decorated papers: Manchester Metropolitan University Special Collections is a valuable resource for students and staff at Manchester School of Art. Now they are looking to further enhance the expansive works they house, by developing a collection of zines. MMU Special Collections will join institutions such as the British Library, the Tate, the Women’s Library and the Glasgow School of Art in being an institution to establish a zine collection, reflecting the ongoing interest and scholarship surrounding the ‘zine’ and its history."

Review from the Bookartbookshop

I love this review from Jon Lander for the Bookartbookshop (London).
The 'nits of truth' final sentence is one of my favourites - up there with "A luxury in these times of garbage!" from The Bedeteca Lisbon, Portugal.
