Despite being up to my ass in alligators this weekend, I have taken up work on CG 6. It is going to be about my move to Ottawa, starting university and other such things. It is going to look a little plain because I didn't bring all of my zine stuff with me when I moved because I didn't have enough space. It should be good. I have high hopes for it.

Having done a lot of research into the world of zines, and the unfortunate discovery that printing an A5 full colour zine is not at all cheap, I've spent today mucking about with layout and print settings and have finally managed to squidge Book Art into a much smaller, envelope friendly size. Much cheaper to print, easier to post, and the pictures still look lovely.
Feel so much better ;)

Excerpt (from intro):
As I've gotten older, I have developed an increasing number of anxieties. Life isn't simple anymore. I have marriage-like relationship with a diabetic man. We have a young child. I am a homeowner. I have a career. I have debt.
I have plenty of things to worry about.
So I started a new zine to help me explore some of my sources of worry. Worry Stone
#1 focuses on my partner's diabetes. I talk about what diabetes does to the body, the… Continue

How do I love zines? Let me count the ways.
I love the way you come from people who are earnest and sincere in their interests, hobbies, rants and raves. I love the way you speak to me with a voice untainted by large corporations and media outlets. I love the way you sniggle into my heart, limping in on a postage stamp that costs more and more until you fear you cannot eek out another. (It only makes you more precious.)
I love the way you tell me what you think, what you… Continue

Hi, all. I'm Kelsey, and I live in Olympia. I've made a few zines in my life, and made even more artists' books. Mostly, though, I'm just a big fan of zines and a zine librarian. I created a zine collection for my library (Olympia Timberland Library) this year. We have over 200 zines in the collection so far, and it's growing slowly as time goes on. Anyhow, just wanted to introduce myself and thank Krissy for putting this forum together. I'll be looking to buy new zines for the library in our… Continue

Absent Cause, my new zine focused on underground and dark culture, is now available.
I created AC to explore topics that resonate with me and many of the artistic and political people whose work I respect and admire: underground cultures, hidden histories, feminist and queer sexualities, chosen families and radical politics; vampirism, the gothic, horror and paganism; surviving abuse, coping with mental illness, self-harm and suicide.
I LOVE TRADES! If you make a zine,… Continue
