a place for zinesters - writers and readers
"I don't have piercings or tattoos, nor do I plan on getting any in the near or distant future, still I found this zine quite interesting and informative.

i've found a few sites that sell zines from the 60's all the way to the mid 90's. some are quite expensive (up to $150) while others are rather reasonably priced ($15-25).
does anyone here collect/buy vintage zines?
where do you get them?
I love libraries (or any kind of collection, really) so naturally, i love zine libraries.
For me, zines are about sharing information and ideas within a community (if not a global community), and there is no better community for sharing information and ideas than a library. And better yet, I think the thing i I love most about libraries is that it goes with the principal that people are naturally good, and will return the books, so they're free for anyone to use.

i know that the mail can take a while, and then once they're finally recieved it takes a while for some people to get back to you cuz they have other stuff piling up around them and are a bit too busy right now to respond.
i'm not complaining. i get that…Continue
