Organized by 10×10 Photobooks in association with Shashin: Photography from Japan.
10×10’s Shashin Zine Fest is an outgrowth of 10×10 Photobooks’ ongoing commitment to projects that bring together diverse photobook communities. The zine fest is a dynamic and entertaining reading room that will pop-up for one week at the Resobox Japanese Gallery in Long Island City, inviting New York visitors to experience the real flavor of what is currently happening in Japan. It’s a great opportunity to introduce to U.S. shores a multitude of new zines and their creators, many of which have never before been seen outside of Japan. With its relaxed environment, readers are encouraged to peruse the zines at their leisure, and should they fall in love with one, all zines will be available for purchase, with average prices ranging from $5 – $20, permitting everyone the chance to take home a unique piece of hip and happening art from Japan.

We were very grateful to Sebastiaan Hanekroot at Colour & Books for so inventively executing the production of our recent 10×10 Japanese Photobooks publication. Sebastian’s recent blog post, A Case in Binding, discusses the production challenges in realizing the elaborate French fold binding and associated gatefolds that designer Sybren Kuiper conceived for our book.
Sebastiaan’s ability to overcome what other book producers would see as obstacles, makes him stand out in the field.
Dankjewel Sebastiaan for such amazing work!
