WHAT IS A ZINE?

A Zine (pronounced Zeen) is a small DIY self-published booklet or mini-magazine most commonly produced on a photocopier. The most popular zine size is an 8.5″ x 11″ paper folded in half. The main goal of producing a zine is to circulate ideas and information whereas other publications are profit-driven. Zines are often made in an edition of 100 or less and have a long history, from science fiction fandom in the 1940s to the punk scene.
