Zine Haul – Noted Festival 2017

But a small selection of my Noted zine haul. Please excuse my very grown out fingernails.

I may have only made it to one day of Noted Festival this year, but it was the most important day of all – the day of my two events.  It was also the day of the Independent Publishing Fair, which meant that I walked away with quite the collection of new zines to enjoy.

In no particular order, here’s what I picked up:

Jedward: Everything you ever wanted to know about the Irish pop music twinsation
