a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Holy Shit bro! thanks for making this. You even had your pages laid out right for odd and even printing on a one side machine.. You have no idea how many people fuck that up. This looks like a great general guidebook and I'm so glad it printed off fine the first time.
Several years ago I made a "booklet" for work (it's not a zine, right *wink*) called "Layout for Non-designers". It was made specifically for the students/instructors and focuses a little on Quark XPress. The overall concepts, however, may be a good guide. Emma, in your case take a look at page 6. It explains my zinester math to doing layout.
It's uploaded as a PDF file, and can be printed 2-sided and stapled.
this handy software called a piece of paper, But you'll need to buy some peripherals, such as a pen, scissors, and (optional) staples.
I use Microsoft Publisher to create the layout. I think the option is called "Booklet". Pretty straight forward. Then I drag and drop the artworks and when everything is in place I convert the whole document to a PDF, for me, it's easier to print but you could skip that last step and go print direct from the document. Cheers!
