Zinery: creepy hobby or ‘most satisfying thing ever?’

Zinery: creepy hobby or ‘most satisfying thing ever?’

JUST FOUND this intriguing article that gives you the zine publisher’s perspective on zinemaking. Why would you do it? Why would you try? There are a lot of people who want to express themselves, sure, but this is a way for those who are interested in moving a step towards real publishing (with an audience, a goal, and a theme in mind before hitting ‘copy’ on the photocopier) from simply making something for your own consumption. I liked this quote:

If no one knows what you’re up to, zine-making is just some creepy hobby, but if it actually gets read, it’s the most satisfying thing ever. —Tsari Paxton, Ten tips for publishing zines

We make zines in print every so often, like the one pictured here. S P A C E || Phnom Penh’s theme is ‘play.’ Discover more about our online zine, S P A C E, which posts every wee, at the bottom of this page.
