About me, my zines

I mostly publish Dutch zines, chief among them is KUTGITAAR, a literary zine I make with a friend of mine. 

 

I did make an English zine for the 24 Hour Zine thing: Amina, a zine about a girl. The first printing is all sold out. It was a hassle to make, so I made a less complicated second printing. I love to do trades. Just send me your address and we'll make it work. 

 

 

I am planning to make more English zines and probably Amina is going to be a series.

Week 6 in Berlin

In a mail conversation between members of the zine-collective I'm in, Waai, we discovered that three of us we're going to be in Berlin in the same week. We agreed not to meet up, but make a zine anyway. Two of us wrote letters to each other, the other one made photo's. The letters and photo's are collected in a zine. Because I wanted the zine to reflect the fact that it we're two distinct letters, I made up this double back: …See More

Live zine @ Entrepot Fictief in Gent (Belgium)

I'm in this collective – that is no collective at all, just a bunch of friends getting together to do stuff now and then – called Waai. We were asked by a new gallery in Belgium, Entrepot Fictief, to do something for the opening weekend.I suggested we make a live zine... everything would be drawn and written AND assembled on the day itself.We did. A nice 28 page little booklet with poetry, drawings, short stories and photographs. A6 size, custom covers on silver paper. We managed to print 22…See More

Kutgitaar at Facing Pages

Posted on May 5, 2012 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

So finally I have something on my main zine (Kutgitar, which is in Dutch) all of you can understand: a presentation in English.

Kutgitaar was born on the night of a literary reading. To pay for the travel expenses of one of the readers, me and Oscar Wyers put together a small zine with texts by each writer, which they sold for a few euros. The title is a reference to a story that Oscar read that night. After this first issue, we decided it would be nice to invite people they…

Here's the PDF of my 24 Hour Zine: Amina - A zine about a girl. (Also see my last blog post.)

 

The 24 copies of the first deluxe printing are all gone, allthough I sent 4 copies to the Avocado Tree Distro. They should have them within a month and they might be available then.

 

Anyway, I'm making a second printing, less of a hassle to make (without two…

Hey, thanks! Post your address here if you want and I'll send you the 2 I've already done. If you like, send me something of your own once you get mine. I'd prefer that to money.

Thanks,

Don
