I'm a zinester living in Paris, France, who is
doing a research work about zines in Japan.
Being unable to travel myself to
Japan directly, and not knowing Japanese, I would like to ask the users of this group some
information about the
Japanese zine scene, maybe by means of an interview. My aim is to do a
review as deep as possible of the diversity and characteristics of
Japanese zines nowadays.
The final report will be published on a Spanish metazine
, which is also devoted to studying the zine scene
and other neighbouring areas of interest (DIY clothes, street art, etc).
The issue will be available for free download. We will send a printed
copy to collaborators (we don't have the resources to print as many
copies as we'd like, that's why we keep a digital version for everyone
to print at home). All content will be publised under a Creative Commons
I'm also interested on trading of my own Fucus zine
or buying Japanese independent
zines, so I can have some solid base to do my research.
Thank you for your attention !
I hope hearing from you soon,
