This seems to be a new blog started by Miguel A. S. Correia of Ultra Violenta (great zine you should check out here) with posts about various museums and galleries he has visited. There’s only a few posts up, but they are fun. Particularly nice to see so many photos. I was led here when Miguel posted in the zinelove chat group we run on facebook.

This is the article and it’s about visiting the Fanzineteca run by Ogata Tetsuo, another member of the group. That’s a beautiful looking place and is definitely somewhere I’d love to see!
