Save the date! The third Better Living Through Xeroxography a.k.a. BLTX, a small press expo, will be held on December 7 (Friday), 8 pm onwards, at Ilyong’s Kalantiaw, Project 4, Quezon City.

If you are interested in books and comics and anthologies and zines by young and sort-of-young Filipino authors; if you are wondering what Philippine writing not published by mainstream presses and not carried by National Bookstore or Fully Booked looks like; if you have a thing for limited editions, handmade books, and strange/useless/lovely/artsy trinkets and objects; if you are in the mood for free beer (first 100 beers free!), free chicken lollipops (first dozen plates free!), and free videoke (no judgment!), then see you on December 7!

If you are in any way involved in Do-It-Yourself publishing or art-making efforts, you might want to join BLTX 3. All you need to do is get in touch ASAP (or no later than November 23) with BLTX organizer Adam David at
