Individual mini zines up for trade with either me or LadyDorian! The debut issues for Poached Egg and Black Hole Brains, two mini doodle zines. Our very first zines.

Also up for sale via PayPal or on my Etsy for $1 each or $1.50 for both (message me for special listing).


Poached Egg - a mini zine with simple, hand colored doodles for those who love minimalism and everyday things. Debut issue's menu consists of breakfast eggs and two eggy desserts.


Black Hole Brains - Awesome doodle zine about the stuff that inner fillings of LadyDorian's head.


Contact us for individual trades or visit my Etsy to buy. If you don't have an Etsy account, contact me for PayPal arrangements.

Hello Fellow Noobs!

I am oh so new to zine making, but I stumbled through a trial run that I hand delivered to a veteran zinester friend of mine. Bumpy. Super bumpy. Now I am about to start in on a new and improved version for public viewing and I'm feelin' shaky about it-- trying to organize my thoughts, what my zine will look like, how to lay it out. Freaking out, basically. Just wanted to tell someone. Thanks!!

hello everyone! i made a 24-hour zine last month; actually this was my first zine ever :)

quarter-sized (A6), 32 pages, hand-sewn; inside black&white, each cover is hand-colored with crayons. done in the old cut n' paste style, it's your typical perzine, with short stories of my childhood, typewriters, finding a gray hair, and insects, among other tidbits...

copies of Ladybug #1 available for 1 euro, plus postage (PayPal preferred; but i might accept cash in foreign currency: $1,50 USD/CAD/AUD, or £1 GBP plus postage), or a trade for other zines (*SELECTED TRADES ONLY* for now).
* check this post for details, more pics & info on how to order/trade *

finally getting it out there.. i have completed my debut, and follow up!!
so now 2, completely different zines for perusal... which brings me to this
Q: i have been down on myself for not having a straight sense of style or obvious direction or linking point between my projects, other than that they are bits of me, and I change every day.. do any of you see this as a problem for continuity? or should i stop over analyzing and get back to writing?!!
ps i'm up for trades so have a look and if you're interested let me know :) cheers, tasha

Hi, thought I'd introduce myself. I am a long time writer working on my first zine, looking forward to meeting lots of new people.

I'm not a newbie...But I wanted to let people here know that I publish a zine called What's A Zine? http://www.etsy.com/listing/44399479/whats-a-zine-a-little-guide-to...
It covers the basics of paper zines and has some little interviews with zinesters about how they got started in zines, etc.
