Its a "stuff I like to make" zine, so it has four step by step instructions (eg ATCs). I cant draw (!) so my illustrations are photographs. Anyway, I made a special ATC for the cover, just printed it out and my printer ran out of both black and coloured ink at the same time! Can't get to the store until Sunday to get new ink, so cant tell how it prints

well, what sort of content do you have?
In general I think simple, bold drawings make the best covers/

Hi Elizabeth

I don't mind answering questions. I am a guest presenter on a radio show about comics and I focus on Zines and the small press. I do a collective zine myself, but I am happy to point you to guys who have been in the scene for longer and share anything I know. Email is dickonharris@yahoo.co.uk- no mob at the moment I am afraid as it got stolen.

Hi all, I'm hoping someone out there will be able to help. I'm currently writing my MA dissertation on the world of zines, and as I'm studying in Plymouth I'm hoping to bring my search close to home. Is anyone in this group from the west, making zines? I'd love to hear from you, and ask you some questions if you don't mind.
Alternatively, if anyone who doesn't mind being asked a few probing questions (on zines) but doesn't currently reside in the west wants to get in touch that'd be awesome too

Thanks awfully, look forward to hearing from you,

Lizzie

Hey guys, just to say there's a few things people might be interested in that I just put up on Last Hours. A video tutorial of the bookbinding workshop I helped run at the Brighton zinefest is here. An interview with Jimi Gherkin (from Alternative Press Fair) is here and a review of the Brighton zine fest is here.

We're gonna be doing a bunch of features this month around zines and stuff. Check out http://www.lasthours.org.uk for more!

I know I'm still kinda lurking here, since I'm from the US, not UK/Ireland... Hope you'll forgive me!

For the next issue of Zine World, I'd like to include some pieces by zinesters who live overseas. If you're interested, please drop me a note.
