We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

my first zine, Ladybug #1 is now ready & available!!

2011/03/10 update:
now available for online purchase!! visit LADYBUG.BIGCARTEL.COM and buy my zine there! you can also check out other zine-related items ;)


2010/08/18 update:
i started a new blog post to keep track of when & who i send Ladybug #1. if you bought a copy or we arranged a trade, check this post...

(the photo doesn't look so great, it's a little grainy, sorry!)

i'm still trying to write a good description for my zine haha.
done in the old cut n' paste style, it's your typical perzine, with short stories about my childhood, typewriters, finding a gray hair, and insects, among other tidbits. nothing too deep or intimate though, because i wanted to make a “positive” zine, something that would be pleasant to read, kinda like “light reading”.

Ladybug #1 is quarter-sized (A6) and 32 pages, hand-sewn with sewing thread. while the inside is all black & white, each cover is hand-colored with crayons, using varied colors. after each copy is assembled, i put a few embellishments on the back-cover, so every copy is always different!

»» in the meantime, leave a comment or email me for info to buy a copy. if you don't have PayPal but still want to get hold of a copy, maybe we can work something out. occasionally i'll accept cash in foreign currency: $2 USD/CAD/AUD, or £1,30 GBP plus postage. oh, and Euros, of course!

if you have any questions feel free to message me at zineproject2009 [at] gmail [dot] com

i'm up for *SELECTED TRADES ONLY* (did you read my update on top of this page?), specially if you make zines too - i'm mostly into perzines, comics, literary zines; i'm not so much into poetry, political or music zines, sorry!
i'm also up for trades for other zines made for this year's 24-Hour Zine Thing!

This looks really cool!
I'd love to trade with you, if you like. I'm pretty new to zines, so I haven't got much to offer you to choose from. I did a 24 hour zine myself called "Miss*information" (24 pages, half-size). Or else: The first issue of my perzine "Cinnamon insanity" (40 pages, quartersize). If you'd like to have a look, I've got some pictures and a short description of both on my etsy page:
Miss*information
Cinnamon insanity #1
Just let me know if you're interested in one of them! <3
