my first ever zine review from dan murphy at syndicated zine reviews

"I don't have piercings or tattoos, nor do I plan on getting any in the near or distant future, still I found this zine quite interesting and informative.

does anyone collect vintage zines?

Posted on January 14, 2011 at 6:35pm 6 Comments

i've found a few sites that sell zines from the 60's all the way to the mid 90's. some are quite expensive (up to $150) while others are rather reasonably priced ($15-25).

does anyone here collect/buy vintage zines?

where do you get them?

Zine Libraries (sharing information and ideas)

Posted on January 12, 2011 at 1:44am 0 Comments

I love libraries (or any kind of collection, really) so naturally, i love zine libraries.

For me, zines are about sharing information and ideas within a community (if not a global community), and there is no better community for sharing information and ideas than a library. And better yet, I think the thing i I love most about libraries is that it goes with the principal that people are naturally good, and will return the books, so they're free for anyone to use.

Are you a real person? I'm wondering because it's been two months since I ordered multiple copies of your zine and I haven't gotten them, nor have I gotten a response to multiple emails and other attempts at contact.

Thanks for the kind words Anastasia, I put tons of effort into the graphics (I hunt down very old magazines) so it's really nice when someone notices!
