Has anyone ever put their zines in those Little Free libraries people build in front of their houses? If yes, any trouble come of that?
I put Mishap special book issue in a few around town. I didn't get any feedback from this. Was wondering if others have had any experiences.
Also, why aren't all those books stolen right away and sold to the used book stores? There are plenty of folks who might do that. Do libraries, no matter how small,…Continue

I picked up a zine the other night and it brought to mind an issue I have thought about a lot over the years: overpricing of zines. Now, people do zines for a variety of reasons and that matters to how they price them. What has bothered me over the last few years are the number of people who seem to be treating zines as "art" and themselves as artists rather than people who make zines. As such, they are generally uninterested in others zines, won't do trades, and charge far more than…Continue

I'm in my lower 30s and this decade I'm documenting in words (and sometimes in photos but mostly in words). I didn't intentionally put my 20s into photography (and my teens into visual art) but that's just kind of the way it turned out. This is the first time I'm intentionally writing personal stories towards future zine-making. Most of my zines are born from a concrete idea: to talk about something specifically, and then printed quickly.
Issue 0 is free, quarter-sized, and 64 pages…Continue

I've started to work on Fixing A Hole issue 2 fully anew because I want it to be analogue. So instead of rattling away on my Alphasmart Neo2 I first write the content in a Moleskine notebook and eventually I type everything out on my East German Erika typewriter. Because analogue feels more honest in a way. I'll post some new pictures this month.

its been a while. i have the zine bug again but yes, life is killing my creative spirit. i might be moving to west philly soon, i'd been living in upper darby for a couple of years - yes, i escaped norristown! - my cat and i have been together for 3 years and i still have two jobs.
hopefully when i move again i will have some time to start researching my food zine idea...lots of taste testing has to happen. and maybe just maybe i can…Continue

I got the idea to make one of these zines from We Make Zine’s own Sophie Sherwood. I had known about the 8-page mini zine format for a while, but like most folks, I thought they worked best if you drew directly to the paper master and xeroxed from there.They are fast, easy and cheap. Just the thing if you want to make a zine that is political or topical that needs a quick turn around.
I had never considered…Continue
