BOUND: Art Book + Zine Fair is where you can browse and buy work from zine and art book publishers, comic book creators and photo book makers from across the region and beyond. Curated by artist TR Ericsson, BOUND unites artists and indie publishers whose work is a platform for wide ranging topics from pop culture, poetry, and politics to the stories of traditionally marginalized voices. BOUND will include pop-up programs like DIY demos, readings or book signings, as well as live music and DJ sets.

This event draws inspiration from Beat writers of the 1950s-60s whose radical, experimental work was rejected and ignored by mainstream publishers. With the help of the mimeograph (a predecessor of the copy machine) writers quickly and cheaply printed their own work in magazines or "zines." Today, zines, art books, and comic books are relevant, critical media for experimental art forms and expressions.
