perpetual motion in an observable world

Written by admin on February 13th, 2011

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.

What’s next?

Here’s a few teaser pages that Dominique Holmes sent over:

The big news is that you can now find Parking Block zines at the rowdy rowdy Saki Records here in Chicago.

They appear to have an endless parade of in store shows. Go see a band, check out some records and pick up some zines. Check out their blog for more info.

OKGreat posted a great review of Drawing Down the Moon including a dramatic reenactment of its arrival. There should be more dramatic reenactments on the web.. Maybe one day there will be a Tawainese animation reenactment of a Parking Block zine. That would be the bee’s knees. Click here to check out OK Great and the video.

Benjamin Carr has been busy. He just released his latest art book, Martin C. From Brentford. It’s limited to 50 so pick it up before they’re gone. He also sent over some photos of what he’s been working on.
