Reportage: Zines celebrated in temporary Bradford shop

A new temporary zine shop is set to open on Bradford's Market Street for one week only from May 13.

Bradford Baked Zines is a week-long event that celebrates self publishing and DIY cultural activity.

Artists, musicians and zine makers will be setting up stalls selling their unique wares of self-bound books and magazines.

A zine is simply a do-it-yourself magazine which came to prominence during the 1970s punk scene.

As well as functioning as a shop, there will be a zine exhibition, library, workshops, and series of talks, discussions and presentations about self-publishing and DIY culture.

The shop is located at 13 Market Street at one of Fabric Art's empty shop spaces.
