LAZAABB is a new independent zine and art book event co-founded by Josh Paul Thomas and Robert Zin Stark. It will host over 50 zine and art book publishers and feature a vast variety of artists, zine makers, publishers, galleries, art book enthusiast, mystics, psychics and astrologers. Grassroots, underground, queer and ‘the unheard of’ welcomed.
Art, Words, and Magic Can All Be One
The idea is to shake up the idea of the “Book Fair” by adding an esoteric slant. There will be a select group of gifted psychics, card readers, and star gazers that will set up shop for the weekend.

LAZAABB feels like a fresh and worthy addition to the book fair scene, one that breathes new life into zine culture’s DIY roots. –
