The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
Galileo, in his book 'Two New Sciences' talked about music theory.
He said that the octave sound was "rather too bland and lacks fire.
But the musical interval called the _______ , he describe as
causing "a tickling of the eardrum so that its gentleness is
modified by sprightliness, giving the impression simultaneously of
a gentle kiss and of a bite." Name the musical interval… Continue

I just set up a new group: "German-Writing Zinesters" is meant to be for all zinesters who write their zines in german, whether it is because German is their native tongue or it is a loved foreign language.
If you write German: come play! :-)

The second mini-zine I've made, this one for a swapbot-swap "Mini-Zine of Craftiness": "On Writing - a mini-zine about the awesomeness of creating texts".
I am very disappointed with what I came up with.
I love writing, but I found it impossible for me to put the feeling I have while writing in words or pictures.
I am wondering how I can manage this better than that, but I have no idea at all on what to do or how to even try.
Probably it is just not possible, and it… Continue

I've completed 2 mini-comic zines. I'll post pictures of them soon.
"Kiki Goes Skinny-Dipping"
an 8 pager, Tijuana style, x-rated zine- x-rated in a sweet charming comical way, but with full nudity and sex. the first in a series of a girl (Kiki) who joins a carnival on a hot day and ends up skinny-dipping with the Carnies and clowns.
an 8 pager, mini-comic about a 7 year old girl who views the world in a twisted, funny way. This is rated… Continue

An Ezine as you know is an electronic newsletter or magazine, which is sent out by email. Yet this standard definition of an electronic newsletter has changed and so too will the true definition of an Ezine in the future. How so you curiously ask?
Well, the reason I say this is because in 1995 we put our newsletters for my company online at our website, because well because not everyone was using email yet and the attachment thing… Continue

i found this cool video on YouTube, by SamProof, were he demonstrates how to make a zine (small format, about 7.5 cm by 10.5 cm, that's about 2"95 by 4"13) without using glue/staples/stitching/etc, just by a special but simple folding process!
see it here:

following my last post, on SamProof's video tutorial, he talks about zine trading and he has had a great idea i feel i must share you (even) more people!
according to his own words, if you would like to have a copy of the zine but are short or out of money, you can send a drawing with a self-addressed stamped envelope and you will receive a copy of the zine back! also, your drawing might appear on the next issue of the zine!
i think this is a very good idea! usually, zine… Continue

Hello all - been lurking for a while, but finally joined instead of just obsessively reading the forum.
Managed to force/convince myself that the second issue of my Clash/Joe Strummer/punk(ish)/related zine that I managed to scrape together wasn't a total waste of ink and double-sided tape and people might actually be interested.
Got some extra emergency high quality photo copies done at the local art shop before posting it off to be printed,
prices have gone right up now… Continue

well, i've spent the last hours browsing trough WMZ, searching for groups & blog/forum posts about stuff i'm interested in, updating my page, etc etc. i've already done some shopping thanks to some members i found! (that's because i'm addicted to shopping - online - for zines!)
i've started by adding 1 friend and joining a few groups and by now i've got 3 friends, and i'm starting to exchange nice messages with interesting and friendly people.

The problem that I thought had ended my drawing career seems surmountable. I'm drawing again and up to page 20 on the Krakos The Egyptian book.
Next is the GoBo zine and a book gathering all three parts of the Dr Morgus Trilogy together. Nothing can stop me....
...that plane seems to be low...and getting closer...

I have been posting this project on mail art sites, but then I thought that since there will be zines in the exhibition (my own) I might try and make it open to zinemakers too. You can see pictures of my previous exhibition on my blog, which included mail art I received for that project, my zines/books, prints, and also a makestation where people could make their own mail art or zines. I've not done a zine call before, but to follow the… Continue

Okay, so I thought that I'd really concentrate on providing some insight into my own way of thinking on the matter of zine production here. Mainly for the fact, that this little area is too far tucked away into the recesses of the interweb for anyone to take notice. How many posts, blogs, and comments will it take for the whole world to be one giant embarrassment? It's not about the back and forth exchange of ideas from one person to the next. This will primarily be a place for me to spill… Continue
