Little Free Libraries and Zines

Hi all,

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,…

See my blog for more about the Texas Video Showdown.

Do you support musicians or want 5 pop stars to marginalize all the rest

Sadly it’s clear to me that before any musician can make a living beyond selling a few t-shirts and cd’s we will have to work together to end the corporate music that is down to about 5 pop stars and 3 mega music corporations. That’s why I started the Texas Video Showdown, a video that brings the conflict to one point, one video, one challenge, one… Continue

Are zine creators artists who deserve premium prices?

     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…

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…

FAH #2 some hiccups cured

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.

Making an 8-Page Mini Photo Zine

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…

More Elvis after Texas Video Showdown

Here's my 1 voice, 1 guitar, 1 revolution version of another Elvis hit, That's alright Mama


PS. Have you voted on the Texas Video Showdown yet? Choice is crystal clear.

Do you want music to be all about 5 pop stars only and stay as it is, or do you want to open the music business to thousands of musicians?

PMS issue 13 - Boston Zine Fest!

Issue 13 of Purple Myrtle Squeegy is complete!

I had an amazing time in Salem and Boston and I though what better way to commemorate my first zine fest experience than to make a zine about it?

My fellow split-zinester, Nyxia Grey (you may remember her from such split zines about Stephen King and a special about journal entries) invited me to glorious MA to visit Salem and its October spookiness and table with her at the Boston Zine…
