New here, and making zines again.

Time I & II:


Time I (48 pages) is a continuation of a zine I published in 2001. Better late than never! Time II (3 pages) covers saving face, clues for those written about in Time I, salutations and goodbyes, reading lists, love, and hesitation. II is mailed out with I. For a copy, please e-mail, message, or tumblr. Thanks! A.

*I apologize for the blurry pictures!


This is my second perzine. Used to go by the name of Krystal Klear, but I changed it to Mangosteen instead. It's 24 pages (excluding cover), stapled and 100% handwritten, which means there are several marks and typos in there somewhere. I cover a range of stuff that has happened in my life so far and how I feel about certain things.

I am up for trades, just drop me a message with your address! :)

If you write a perzine, let's set up a trade!

A Visitor in Myself #2
Perzine 1/4 size : 30 pages
A continuing narrative about mental health, self-care, memory, and learning to love and appreciate life as it comes. Other stories include a bad drinking experience, friendships, and finding kinship through zines.

Hi, guys. I've just completed an illustrated zine called Knots. It's a light-hearted look at some complicated relationships. For further images/details, see my Etsy shop. You can buy it there, if you'd like to - or just message me about trades. Ta.

Hey, all. Earlier this year I made a zine called The Best Friend I Never Met. It's thirty-odd pages of excerpts from around eight years' worth of letters from a former pen pal. She wrote beautiful, funny, tragic things, and when we lost touch it broke my heart. For further images/details, see my Etsy shop. You can buy it there - or just message me regarding trades. Thanks!

The latest issue of my perzine (the Ken Chronicles #28) is finished: 24 digest-sized pages with a color centerfold of photos. Contains an in-depth look at the book, "Leisureville" and it's subject matter; a recent trip to Cabo; reviews of zines, movies, music & wine; adventures in buying an AC and a mattress; and more! Available postpaid to the US for $2.50 but I'm always interested in trades; what have you got?

I have a new zine available for trade or $1!
Leave a message on my profile or email me at nichole@illvision.net

Pieces #8.5 / The Flip Side

Perzine 1/4 size : 34 pages
This is a split zine I did with my mother for the 24-hour Zine Thing. Zines have been a way for me to communicate with her some difficult things about myself, and I wanted her to share this medium of expression with her. I was delighted when she accepted! This is a lighthearted zine filled with stories about the library, transient pets, a recipe, favorite numbers, quotes, and blackout poetry.
