Conceived by Gordon Armstrong and Rob Peart, who met while studying graphic design at university, Zineswap is both a swap-shop-like resource and a vast contemporary archive of self-published print. Initially run from a bedroom in Hackney, Zineswap now has its own second-hand filing cabinet, a couple of desks and an intern, and entails screen-printing nights, pop-up swap-shops and installations.
