I love how zines seem to be big news again. I’ve had a bunch of questions recently about how to make them and I see them more and more at craft fairs. I’ve been collecting zines since the mid-nineties and have boxes and boxes of them. I thought it might be fun to post about them on here, in a random kind of way. If there’s a bad thing about zines it’s that they’re so poorly documented – if I missed buying a zine back in 1998 the chances are I’ll never get to see a copy. In my day, most zines had very limited print runs and reprints were virtually unheard of. Anyway, I’m not going to scan in every page of every zine I own but I will take a few photos of my favourite pages. I’ve already plucked out a few favourite and will get posting soon.
I’m also starting a few other new regular things on the blog, just to keep my hand in. As you may or may not know, I also blog regularly at Super Cute Kawaii and Glasgow Craft Mafia, not to mention running my diskant site so having regular topics makes it much easier not to get stuck for ideas or neglect one blog for another.
So, watch this space! I might even finish off the Bangkok Shopping Guide since most of it is in my Thailand zine now.
Anything else you’d like me to share more of?
