The first SMALL PRINT was a day-long zine & self-publishing event held on 11 October 2003 at the Grey Lynn Library hall in Auckland, New Zealand.
People sold and traded zines, comics, self-published books and other crafty things all day, workshops were held on various aspects of self-publishing and DIY art, SAFE sold tasty vegan food, Laura A. showed people how to make buttons, a documentarian filmed and interviewed people, Steven told stories, people sat around reading, and a collaborative zine called The Small Print was made.
A few photos from the first Small Print are on Moira’s Flickr account.
