ok, here are some reviews, by Amber of Fight Boredom/Culture Slut
Although the majority of this issue is written in French, Gizmo has used a few pages to practice his English. As it happens, I use his zine to practice my French. This issue is mostly typewritten and laid out cut and paste style. Giz writes about being vegan in France, which is a rarity, and cooking vegan meals for local show-goers. This made me happy because I actually just went to a show last week… Continue

Just added a pretty awesome Olympia zine called Radical Mycology, which will teach you a good percentage of things you might want to know about mushrooms. Not one of the classic zine subjects, I know, but that's what makes it so good. Check it out. Totally recommended if it's something you're at all interested in. http://msvaleriepark.blogspot.com/2009/12/radical-mycology-zine.html

Hi, I'm part of a writers group in Melbourne, Australia and we've just published a zine of short stories called southpaw grammar. It features work by Benjamin Solah, Sam Stoker, Ben Pearmain, Alex Ettling and Frankie Cole, who've tackled topics from failed dates to fishing, vegan extremes to the undead.
If anyone would like to trade with us that would be rad... sends your to

Hi All! I just joined the We Make Zines board yesterday, and I have been reading and trying to find an appropriate way to make a post about my new zine... so I am writing this blog!
I used to be very involved in the zine community, and I wrote zines like "rock star with words", "the remainder of zero" and "there is still a chance for us". And in the late 90s I also made a lot of zines that I won't mention :) Anyways, it's been a few years since I've made a zine I've really put out… Continue

There have been a few submissions for covers to #8's ButtRagMag and I just wanted to post to see if anyone has any feedback about this.

Then Hugo who did Churn comics and draws such great big butts! I have grabbed and put in zines with his permission. Now he has drawn a cover especially for ButtRagMag! While I have already… Continue

It's been a long while since the distro is opened. Lots of factors play into that but it's open now and I'm having a sale for it.
By the way, if the layout is kind of a hassle to navigate let me know so I can make it much more accessible. Thank you!
Sale has been long over!

Inspired by an old photographic project of mine (read about it here
) I put together a mini zine about eight individuals sharing a single moment in time - 12.11pm to be exact. Its printed on a single sheet of A4 which is then folded up to fit in the palm of your hand. It also opens up to reveal a puzzle regarding the eighth individual. I plan to place a couple in time related library books during one of my visits… Continue
