(disclaimer: this is just a personal reflection, obviously I don't speak for the whole zine library!) In April my wife Abi and I left our home in Kirkcaldy for a 6 month bike ride across Europe. We were both excited to go but sad to leave lots of things, including the Edinburgh Zine Library behind.... Continue Reading →

S.A.D Party Fife #1
