We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

What are the title page guidelines for zines?

Are there any? I have pretty much finished my book art zine... given that it is to sell on Sunday it is only my artworks featured, but I'm worried about the title page. I Don't think that I want to have any text on the front cover, can I publish like that? Or does it not look professional enough?

Oops - have I left it too late to check with Kate about the photo? Sorry!

I'd suggest if you don't want text on the front cover, don't put it on. Of all things, a zine about book art should do whatever it wants with its front cover!

No, no way don't be sorry, I'd leave weeks for asking that sort of thing, they take time. I had a deadline of this sunday so I thought that the first issue would just be stuff that I had the rights for ;)

This is the cover I went with, but as I have only printed one copy so far (ran out of card stock) it's never too late, so feedback would be mucho appreciado.

W3rd :P
I tried to incorporate the text into the illustration so it has a title, but hopefully it's not too glaring. Still not sure about the font though.

For the intro page I guess it's traditional to make excuses for how late that particular issue is out!
