Aunty Mabel has been on hiatus since 2014, and the time has come to wrap up the distro for good.
This project started in 2009. Four of us started doing zine stalls at markets, and called ourselves the Perth Zine Collective because we had to have something to write on a form.
In 2011, we moved online and changed the name to Aunty Mabel’s Zine Distro with some additional group members to help us keep the zine culture flame burning in WA.
Since 2009, we ran three zine fairs, facilitated dozens of workshops, held readings, tabled at many events, sold hundreds of zines, and made some excellent friends all over Australia.
Thank you to anyone who ever bought a zine from us, to those of you who submitted zines to us and to those who gave us table space, and to all of you who read, buy and create zines in WA. You are all the best.
With much zine love,
Aunty Mabel and her remaining nieces Anna, Danni and Miko
