What is SPF?
SPF (Small Press Fair) Fort Lauderdale is a day to celebrate print with small, regional presses, independent publishers, artists, designers, zinesters and the similarly afflicted and more.
Organized by IS Projects and Girls’ Club, SPF Fort Lauderdale is an opportunity for the regional print-making, book-making and zine-making community to share ideas and showcase new work for one special day in Fort Lauderdale.
SPF Fort Lauderdale includes a MARKET for exhibitors to share and exchange delectable print, book and zine goods, a STEAMROLLER event for artists to go giant on their print size, DEMO stations for master printers to demonstrate techniques and technologies, CREATION STATIONS for visitors to make and trade their own zines, and a STAGE for a forum of discussion and debate revolving around our sunny subculture of independent print-, book- and zine-makers.
SPF Fort Lauderdale launched its first edition November 12, 2016, in FATVillage, and will be back at it each year in November.
