After a bit of a delay I’ve added the first batch of Orange by Timothy Olson to the site. Most of last year was spent putting together Farecard. We also made some slick coozies. Hoping it drys up soon. It’s already been too long of a winter.

We’ve added a select selection of solid new zines over the past few months. With Boys #2 from Tim Johnson, Does Not Equal from TJ Larsen and most recently We Know You Suck from Justin Carlin. Add them to you’re personal collection or give them to your little brother. Either way get them soon because the quantities are limited and they’re going fast. Happy holidays and tacos for all!

After an extended hiatus Parking Block with two new releases for the holiday season. Paintings, illustrations and words of wisdom fill Lisa Romero’s “Connections.” Jeremy Tubb’s “Wherever god strikes me down” features photographs of dazed cross country travels and confused late nights.

Over the next few weeks a number of past and future members of the Parking Block roster will be out and about showing art. This Saturday you can check out Brad Westcott’s work up in the Never Rest show in Vancouver.  A little closer to home, Tim Pigott is a part of the “Text, Drugs and Rock n Roll show at Maxwell Colette on Friday December, 2nd. You can also check out Alex Cohen and Oscar Arriola at the “Hold Fast To Dreams” show at Believe Inn. Make a night of it!

Next week is the start of the holiday shopping frenzy. Even if you don’t buy a zine from Parking Block this year try and support at least one artist in your holiday purchases. Help people make things happen!

There has been a bit of a delay with the posting process thanks to this unfortunate occurrence and with that delay finally ending it’s time to roll out the new releases. First the final 2 publications of 2010: A Personal Dinner Invitation by Alberto Aguilar and Listening To The Lower Frequencies by Tim Pigott. And hot off the printer here are the first 2 zines for 2011: Inland Architect by Christopher Smith and Over and Out by Brad Westcott. These have been added to the online store or you can pick them up in person at Quimby’s or you can see all of Parking Block’s zines at this year’s Chicago Zine Fest March 25th – 26th. Stop by for a sticker and a high five.
