Lilmag is a zine distro/online shop based in Tokyo, Japan
particularly focused on;
Zines, Minicomi(as Mini-Communication, this is a Japanese term), Artist books, various kinds of independent publishing, The world of Dojinshi(this is also Japanese)/Dojinshi of the world, art and sound, craft and D.I.Y, and so on.
I know it is too broad.
Basically I am introducing works of my friends and things I personally fond of.
My preferance is more important than the established sense of genre or category here.
Lilmag is run by Momo Nonaka, freelance journalist/translator.
Please check my personal website Tigerlilyland for my works（in Japanese).
In Japan there is unbelievably huge independent publishing scene related to Manga/Otaku culture, but the network for art/music/political/personal zines is quite weak when it's compared to the USA, I feel.
I would like to explore the diversity of independent publishing today, and make the space where things gathered and mixed by very personal view.
Basically this is a labour of love, however, I would like to give fair and healthy price so I can continue doing this.
