We are SUPER excited and SUPER proud to announce or third anthology since we started One Beat Zines almost EXACTLY one year ago:
“Identity” is a book full of varied and diverse female voices writing and/or drawing about who they are, how they see themselves and how they feel placed in the world at large – featuring over 80 pages of personal essays, illustration, photography, comics, interviews, and collage work, printed on lovely recycled, uncoated textured paper. And it is now available for pre-order in our shop!
We have as many as thirty-three amazing contributors for this book – including, for example:
£10 + p&p
A5 with a spine, 80+ pages, full colour
Cover printed on 300gsm recycled, uncoated card
Insides printed on 100gsm recycled, uncoated paper
The book will premiere at Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds on November 14th, 2015, and mailed out to pre-order customers by early December (in time for Christmas!).
Annnnnd, the most important thing – ALL PROFITS AFTER PRINTING AND POSTAGE WILL GO TO CHARITY!
Profits will be evenly split between The Albert Kennedy Trust, a charity that supports young LGBT 16-25 year olds who are made homeless or living in a hostile environment, and The Feminist Library in London, who are a registered charity run by volunteers since 1975 and are currently looking for a new home due to being priced out of Elephant & Castle.
So please help us raise as much money for these great charities as possible – pre-order your copy now, and tell all your friends!
Watch this space for more updates and previews – and if you have any questions, shoot us an email at onebeatpublishing [at] gmail [dot] com, or shout at us on Twitter!
Instead of a crowdfunding campaign, we will be funding the printing of this anthology through pre-orders from our online shop. We’ll let you know here and on our Twitter when those get started!
One Beat Zines is a small press, DIY zine collective that operates out of our bedrooms, and so the printing of the book will be funded through pre-orders taken through the One Beat Zines BigCartel shop. The printers used will be Inky Little Fingers. All profit made from the book after printing and postage will be distributed as follows: 50% of the profits after printing and postage will go to The Albert Kennedy Trust, a charity that supports young LGBT 16-25 year olds who are made homeless or living in a hostile environment, with the other 50% going to The Feminist Library in London, who are a registered charity run by volunteers since 1975 and are currently looking for a new home due to being priced out of Elephant & Castle.
We hope you’re as excited as we are!
