Pine Island Press is having a busy summer! Incandescent Issue Four made it’s debut at the Portland Zine Symposium last weekend. It was delightful to have all the Issues lined up in a row and to see reactions to each one. The new cover image by Matt Gainer got a lot of recognition. Issue Four is currently is available online and the first batch has been shipped, so if you already ordered – it is on its way! We hope it will hit store shelves in Portland in the next week or two. PIP will also be tabling at the SF Zine Fest the first weekend of September. If you are in the area come by our table!
Issue Four’s contributing photographers have been posted! This issue has photos from 25 photographers from 9 different countries. We want to give a big thank you to all the talented artists that shared their work with us. Here is a little sneak peak of the cover. The photograph is from Matt Gainer’s series “Imperial”.
This weekend is the 4th Annual Book Fair at the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center. The Indie Photobook Library will be setting up a pop-up “reading room” of books selected from the permanent collection, the focus will be on zines, the curated group photobook, a look into interior mundane life, and the altered image. To see a full list of the books included (Incandescent Issue Three is one of them) check out their website. The fair is free and open to the public, Folks in Philly should for sure go check it out.
We had an amazing weekend at the LA Art Book Fair. It was held at the The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. The place was huge and filled with beautiful books, zines, and more! Issue one of Incandescent was one of the publications featured at Kickstarter’s table. We will be posting Issue Three in our online store in the next couple days. We have also added a list of stores that carry Incandescent here: incandescentzine.wordpress.com/locations.
