Small Press Heaven @ Fumetto 2015



This year I organised the Small Press Heaven, a market for self-publishing comic and print artists. It took place on the two weekends during the Fumetto - International Comic Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland, in March 2015. Fumetto will be in its 25th year and focuses on star comic artist exhibitions, graphic novel presentations and some comic/art crossover. Small Press Heaven is the platform where artists are invited to present and sell their self-published products to the festival audience. The gathering and interaction of these artists serves a vital purpose of a festival. Small Press Heaven was initiated by Nicolas Wouters in 2013. In 2015 I continued on his structures and tried to get an international as possible crowd together. 56 artists and collectives from 12 countries attended. Check out their very cool work:
