a place for zinesters - writers and readers
(the report is in Spanish and English). Also in the menu: mail art.
This is my first attempt at the 24 hour zine thing and I had a ball making it. It’s called “An Exploration” and is all about my journey from abusive sex to bad sex to blah sex to finally discovering myself fully through bdsm. There are some TRIGGER WARNINGS for this issue for sexual assault and graphic depictions of bondage and masochism.

Zero Hour is unlike the other issues of Printaissance in some very key ways, while remaining true to some of the style and format that has made Printaissance so popular among ones of readers. A very random mix of rants, musings, poems, Dr. Who trivia/game and oh so much more that all came together in under 24 to meet the deadline for the 24hr. Zine Thing 2011.
Just like all Printaissance issues there is a two page ‘centerfold’, this one contains a timeline of the construction of the zine itself. Overall, it is a very eclectic sort of issue. Both personal and political. Poetic and playful.
Zero Hour (24 Quarter-Sized Pages / Available for Trade)
'Shape & Situate: Posters of Inspirational European Women' is a zine of posters made by artists and DIY creative folk within Europe, each poster highlighting the (often hidden) history and lives of radical inspirational women and collectives from Europe, as a way of connecting us with the past, the present, and to help us to make sure that there will be a future which contains such creative and pioneering female action and activity. The zine aims to activate feminist cultural memory, to inspire in the present and to visually bring women’s social and political history to life.
Posters by: Erica Smith, Rachael House, Melanie Maddison, Michelle Mendonca, Anna Knowles, Verity Hall, Kathryn Taylor, Nina Nijsten, Peter Willis, Emily Aoibheann, Ed Webb-Ingall, Cara Corden, Patrick Staff, R Clout, Kathleen Teadrinker, Marylou Anderson, Flo Brooks, Charlotte Cooper, Cendrine Rovini, Gladys Badhands, James Clayton, and John Davison.

The first issue of my new zine is out, called 'Culture is not your friend'. You can find pictures over at http://zine.macabremagpie.net
40 pages long, quite text-heavy with a lot of original artwork. Black and white (though this is a deliberate design choice, not a cheapskate thing!). I talk about the anxieties of working as an artist, not 'growing up', cynical ideas for inventions, valid forms of art, censorship in language, why I should never go Ice Skating ever again and a few other silly things. Hopefully there's something in there for everyone.
Price is £1 (including p+p) which you can send to firstname.lastname@example.org via paypal, or I will trade.
I'm also doing audio versions of the zines which serve as a little free preview, featuring excerpt readings and a little extra content. The podcast is on its way to iTunes but for now the first Audio Zine is available here: http://www.macabremagpie.net/Culture_Ep1.mp3
