Over 600 DIY literati came out for the Chicago Zine Fest last weekend for workshops, performances, an art show and tons of tables overflowing with zines. The two day affair kicked off Friday night with a series of readings at Quimby's, followed by an art show and film screening at Johalla Projects. Saturday featured a day full of workshops and over 100 zinesters showcased their wares. The fest attracted zines and distros from all over the country and even a few folks from Canada. Afterward, the fest turned into a late night party at the Ball Hall, featuring readings from a few zinesters and music by Eric Ayotte, Letters To The Moon, and World's Smallest Puzzle.
