Richard Hugo House Zine Archive and Publishing Project Collection Preservation

Funding supports the purchase of storage supplies and furniture to house a collection of over 20,000 zines. Zines are usually handmade and self-published in small editions to be distributed locally, or by mail, or at zine conventions. While the content is quite diverse, the collection is organized in general categories such as Art, Do-It-Yourself, Humor, Food and Drink, Politics, Race and Ethnicity, Travel, and Work.

Richard Hugo House, a literary arts center in Seattle, Washington, requests a grant of $6,000 to purchase archival quality boxes and a museum cabinet to ensure the preservation of the Zine Archive and Publishing Project (ZAPP). ZAPP is a collection of over 20,000 hand-made zines ("zine" derives from "fanzine" or "magazine"), and is one of the largest and most significant zine collections in the world. Archival boxes would replace existing cardboard boxes in which the publicly accessible collection is currently stored. The museum cabinet would provide storage for all rare and any duplicate/archival copies in the collection. The preservation project will create safe, long-term storage for the publicly accessible collection, and for the rare and second/archival copies in the ZAPP collection.
