Archives for the month of: May, 2011


Opening day is in 72 hours away and just a quick skim through our list of contributors tells you that many people had a hand in helping exhibition No. 3, aka The Reading Raum, come to fruition.

We’re pretty overwhelmed these days, not just by the amazing work arriving in our post box daily, but also the huge amount of help we’ve received putting this together.

Thanks to Ina, Dolly, Stef, the really mighty ladies at Etsy, and for EVERYTHING: Aidan.

Oh yeah, in case you didn’t catch that, we open up FRIDAY, MAY 27 at 7pm!!!


As No.2 draws to a final close this week, we’re celebrating with something special for you! If you’ve had your eye on a certain wunder in the kabinet, now is your very last chance to make it yours.

For the final 4 days of the exhibition, everything in the kabinet will be 20 percent off! You must visit us and celebrate in person to receive the discount. A considerable one, we might add, as No.2 houses some incredible works!

Don’t delay!

We’ve got news. It’s big.

No. 3, otherwise – and, perhaps nostalgically – known as The Reading Raum has us not only changing exhibitions, but also exhibition space! Our new raum is less kabinet and more….turtle.

Located inside Etsy’s Berlin Labs, ‘The Turtle‘ was designed by Luis Berrios Negron as a modulor/mobile space for workshops and exhibitions. This incredible cubicle on wheels will be our summer home which we’ll be filling with zines, books, and printed papers from around the globe! Acting as both an archive of zine collections lent to us and gallery of more current works, The Reading Raum will be a full-on interactive project, complete with a comfy couch and floor cushions to wile away some summer hours exploring the world of super-indie publishing. Yay!

Oh yes, we open May 27!!
