We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I know we're all going to do it, so I guess we could keep it neat and tidy by putting it all in one thread. So here goes, JUST post about your new issue in this thread, don't discuss or reply, that way new members can easily see what output we're all responsible for!

thanks

I've never really publicized my zines, just have quietly attended Canzine West, which usually amounts to a hill of beans but is still rather fun as long as you have a flask tucked in your pocket.

I have a few things on various distros like Sweet Candy and Antiquated Futures, but now ...da na na!...here is an Etsy store:

"House Finch Zines"

A bunch of solidly-written, lengthy, funny/smart good ol' fashioned zines. Perfect for long bus rides or sunny park benches. Thanks, I love you all!

The latest, OPTOGRAM, is a hundred damn pages for three (3!) dollars.

Who knows what the caged bird thinks...?

Life and death, love and loss...we have all been there.

The Man Called Uncle Tim #1

This is the first in a series of zines about my uncle who died in 1995 and who I never really knew. In collaboration with members of my family, I try to understand how he lived and loved in a polyamorous queer Quaker intentional community in rural Ohio.

Half comic book; half zine, issue #1 features oral history with my Grandma and a brief introduction to Quakerism in the US. A5, 32 pages, two color (blue and black) riso printed throughout with over 30 original illustrations. Printed by Footprint Workers Co-op in Leeds, England.

Free riso printed bookmark with every zine! Available here.

Once again, The Last Word is busting its butt to churn out another issue, and this is a special one. It's a "PLANES, TRAINS, AND BUSES" edition!!!

That's right, peepos! This ish is all about mass transport - including a recent bus trip from hell! While much of this edition is a mind-blowing critique of the likes of Greyhound and Delta, there's so much more! There's even another hilarious poo-poo story!

So point your pooper here...

Just finished my first zine in EIGHT YEARS!!! Been working on this for months and am very happy with how it turned out, so I hope you'll all give it a look. (Scrambling to finish another two before the Brooklyn Zine Fest on 4/26, so expect me to post about those shortly.)

Here's the description from Etsy....

Some Notes on Film, Vol. 1

Debut issue! Eight essays on various films and on film, filmmaking, and art in general. Features original illustrations as well as film stills.

I started Some Notes on Film as a way of encouraging myself to articulate my free floating thoughts about the films I watch. Instead of writing reviews, I try burrowing into specifics: particular themes, motifs, aesthetic choices. I’m writing from the perspective of a filmmaker, and so the observations I make are usually somehow related to me thinking through my own practice.

Topics for this issue include:
- Steve Martin's goofy tenderness in The Jerk
- Josh Safdie's microbudget indie The Pleasure of Being Robbed (as seen on the cover)
- Brian Eno's idea of art as a "trigger for experience" (and why I don't like it)
- Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye and Renaissance painter Pieter Bruegel
- Ain't Them Bodies Saints compared to Terrence Malick's Badlands
- Billy Wilder's The Apartment and physicality in screenwriting
- the difficulty of portraying digital life in movies
- plus a lengthy intro essay on the differences between zines and blogs

Half-sized
56 pages
Black and white
Card-stock cover
Saddle-stitched (stapled)

You can pick up a copy for $4.25 on my Etsy shop.

Hi all,

Hope all is as well as can be.

Mishap #33 is done and available for free. Send me a mailing address and I'll send one out--trades more than welcome.

#33 is a book review special for the 20th anniversary of the title. It includes a rousing argument for the value of fiction, multiple book reviews from a variety of angles, a story, and some lovely photos from trips around the West/Southwest of the U.S.

Thanks,

Ryan

Hello!! I'm really sucky with introductions but my name is Logan and I am sixteen years old and run a zine in Delaware. THE COLLAR TONES is a quarterly zine about art, culture, and writing! Spring 2014 / Issue #5 includes an interview with drag queen OKStupid (Jake Thompson) and a piece on how to throw a good party by club kid Nicky Ottav. This issue also marks the year anniversary of when I started this zine. It is 30 pages in black and white with color accents. You can view it online here. I am currently working on the next issue for summer but I hope you enjoy this! If you have any comments/critiques/suggestions or if you want to subscribe for one year (4 print issues) for $5, let me know!! Email me: thecollartoneszine@gmail.com

OH AND ALSO I have a small haiku zine cleverly titled "Haikus of an Angsty Gay" that I am selling for $2. It is a 4x6 inch zine with 56 pages created in a punk fashion. This zine differs very much from my main zine. If you're interested, please let me know!

Shelf Life issue 1 - "The East Village Triangle"

Debut issue! A chronicle of me and my girlfriend's adventures in used book hunting. Issue 1 covers NYC's East Village. Part store review, part book review, part perzine, part travel guide. Includes original photographs and illustrations.


Over the past few years, the two of us (Annie and Tim) have become obsessed with digging through shelves, stacks, boxes, carts, and racks in search of great used book finds. We even plan our vacations around visiting every bookstore we can manage within a given area. So we decided to write Shelf Life as a way of sharing the stories of our adventures in used book hunting. We write about the stores themselves, as well as about the books we found there, and our experiences passing through the various cities we've been to. This first issue focuses on our home turf and on some of our most beloved and frequented shops. Future issues will center around different cities or regions we've visited.

Stores visited in this issue:
- Strand Book Store
- Alabaster Bookshop
- East Village Books

Plus, "Have You Read _____?" - a dispatch from the Strand carts.

Half-sized
36 pages
Black and white
Cardstock cover (in "Strand bag yellow!")
