Texan artists and makers will descend upon Central Library this weekend for San Antonio's biggest zine party of the year. The day-long San Antonio Zine Fest will feature workshops, panels and a wide selection of zines covering everything from photography and illustration to poetry and personal stories.
Although a full list of exhibitors has yet to be released, SAZF promises that 2019's event will feature not only veteran zinesters, but also a whole slew of first-timers. To encourage attendees to get in on the action, there will be a DIY zine-making station for people to create their own mini-publications.

– who designed SAZF 2019's official posters and merch – Warship Zine
, That Gray Zine
, La Gorda Zine
and Tomboy Toons
