Short Run, Seattle’s Small Press Fest
A Showcase Of Regional Small Press Publications And Individual Makers Of Art Books, Zines, Comics, Literary Works, And Animation
Despite a thriving small press community, Seattle hasn’t had its own small press event — until now! Short Run is free to the public and welcomes local creators who will display their books for your viewing pleasure. First-time exhibitors will sit alongside legends of the underground in this co-mingling of literary journals, limited edition artists’ books, handmade comics, zines, and more.
Animation will be screened throughout the day featuring work by SEAT (Seattle Experimental Animation Team), and David Nixon, Julie Alpert, and Andy Arkley. A portrait challenge will be open to all who want to create something of their own at the event. Tasty treats have been generously donated to our bake sale by Macrina Bakery, Bang Bang Café and an array of Seattle bakers.
In the evening join us at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Georgetown for our after-party and art show featuring work from exhibitors at Short Run such as Max Clotfelter, Jesse Reklaw, Sean Christensen, Tim Root, Chris Cilla, Erin Tanner, Tory Franklin, Jason T. Miles, and Andrice Arp.
We hope to see you there!
