Manchester Victoria Baths Zine Convention

We had a blast heading up to Manchester this past weekend.
The Victoria Baths is an incredible space now used as an Arts Centre. It was at one time a public swimming baths and the building is worth checking out on it's own. If you ever in Manchester go here!
Here's a load of pics:

Too many photos? Probs.
Huge thanks to Natalie Bradbury for putting on such a good day and to everyone who said hello and to Queen Chriszeenia for becoming an honorary UltraMember for the day/life and to everyone who bought some of our crap! THANKS!

Ein Ultra Pferd in Berlin!

We have been asked to participate in a zine exhibition for The WunderKabinet in Berlin this Summer! How very exciting! It is being hosted by Etsy Labs in Berlin, a bricks and motar shop and gallery for the international online handmade marketplace. It'll be called The Reading Raum, and it starts on 27th May and will run through the summer as an interactive, half-read-only archive and half gallery of current works for sale. We will be exhibiting our "Ultra Horse Fags" and there will be a limited edition of them on sale there too. So if you're in the neighbourhood...

Picture of the package the wonderful people in Berlin will be receiving from us.

Ultra Horse hits London zine Symposium 2011

Yes, I know I'm nearly a month late in putting this up, but hey, we're all friends here right?
So it was amazing. The standard of zines was out of this world, and the standard of cakes was average to good, but the best bit, as always was the people and other zinesters I met there.
To name a few, Peg Powler from Teeside, Zeene from Loughborough with their hilarious zines, Larry Jaffee with his Eastenders inspired Wolford Gazette, and soo many more. Everyone was great, I just wish I hadnt been so chained to my stall and could have spent hours perusing the stalls.
Next stop - Manchester! Bring it!
