Risobook 1

I printed a book in Riso, a very similar technique to screen printing. In January I bought a new machine. Hence the title I gave to my book 'Risobook 1 - MZ 1700 E' as a tribute to a small printing machine within the graphic industry, a bit like an experimental poet names his poems after the title of a manual.

I placed my collages and drawings on the Riso-scanner, chose a color and sometimes printed an image on top of another. I made some new collages for that new Riso-machine, but…

Call for Submissions: Dear Anonymous 3

I'm sorry I keep posting up this call, but I am still looking for letters. You can send more than one. :)

Dear Anonymous 3 is on its way and I'm once again looking for letters!

As for content, these letters can be confessionals, but they can also be whatever you like them to be. Write to your life, write to your cat, write to your past or your future... Dear Anonymous is about writing the letters of the things you can't say for whatever reason.

Send letters to…

Books on Zines

Well, no one can accuse me of half measures when I get into something...

I have a habit of taking on something new - from a new computer game to a new subject of interest - and reading everything I can about it. Watching tutorial, documentary, and every other sort of videos about the subject. So on and so forth.

There is, unfortunately, a limited number (about 6 in the search, 4 of which are somewhat relevant) or books available on the subject of zines. This is understandable…

A Bit Spesh

Well, I have half a dozen letters now for DA3, and that's good enough for me to get a start on making the issue. 

But, because I love making my life more complicated than it needs to be, I've decided I want to 'freshen up' Dear Anonymous. I need tougher covers (rather than green copy paper) for starters. I also think I'm going to do an intro as well rather than just the letter from me at the end. I was going through 1 and 2, and I realised that people might like some warning about the…

Digitizing Zines

Hey All!

I'm a student working on a feminist zine digitization project. I'm focusing on Riot Grrrl style zines but I'm interested in them all! I wanted to hear from some zinesters about their thoughts on digitization and zines from the past. 

Do you think you can read a scanned copy and get the same experience? 

Are there any zines you wish you could find again?

How useful is online community to zine culture?

Would you be interested in contributing zines,…

The Musea Contest is back

Musea Art Quiz

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:Name a BIG hit from the golden age of the 60’s, and most likely this WOMAN was playing bass on it. Name her.



When negotiating his contract for the head of the art department with one of the major film studios, he added a clause that he would be listed as the “art director” on every film released while he was there. That turned into credits on over 1500 films over 32 years – more credits than any… Continue

Pondering a Pen Name

I've recently started my first perzine. That's not to say it's the first perzine I've started. What I mean to say is that I have started a perzine that I fully intend to publish, at which point it will become my first perzine.

It occurs to me that perzines, being of the nature they are, can invite unwanted attention into one's life if one chooses to publish under one's own name. While I certainly don't feel that I should feel ashamed of anything I write, there's also things like…

Work In Progress - Gemma Flack

Picked this baby up from her at ZICS 2013 - she was running the long table with a friend/colleague and looking absolutely fabulous. She was the only one I was comfortable showing my sketch book to, and she accepted it with grace and respect.



I liked this zine because of it's exploration of gender…

Amsterdam Zine Jam 2014

I wrote a blogpost on the Amsterdam Zine Jam 2014 on my blog and also posted pictures on my flickr. I thought it would be best to just link to it, instead of crossposting that novel the post everywhere. :-D

Brekend nieuws... still alive and kicking...

The original Veill issue two was finished in just one week somewhere back in July this year. I decided to withdraw the issue because I found the contents much too personal. Guess what? This original Veill will after all be released. Yeah, sure it's personal, but at the same time it's so full of live and things: it would definitely be a shame to stash it away. So, I will have issue two photocopied this next December, together with Veill issue three. New photos to follow soon.
