Durable Goods Continues to Archive in New Places

Papercut Zine Library at Lorem Ipsum Books in Cambridge, MA

As promised Durable Goods has been working to find more venues to archive the zine.  It takes lots of sifting and a bunch of hope, but it has been worth it.  I think it is important to promote bookstores, libraries and any sort of print project especially in this age of technology.  I am a big fan of advancements in technology and inventions that can bring us closer as people.  I do however maintain a certain Victorian air to my character when it comes to books.  There is something transformative when you read a book or poetry on the page than on the screen.  I think by archiving the work of the writers in Durable Goods we retain some knowledge of the history we are presently creating in the small press.

Listed below are the newest places that Durable Goods will be archived starting with Issue 52:

Brooklyn College Library, Brooklyn, NY

University of Alabama's Special Collections, AL

Marlboro College, VT

Papercut Zine Library, Cambridge, MA

University of Wisconsin's Special Collections

Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto, Canada

Read. Write.
Support Small Press.
Be Kind to Each Other.
