An additional 5 participants have been added to the Participants page, making for a total of 58 participants signed up this year so far! The Flickr set had been set up so that you may view larger scans of all the submitted zines. Interviews and tutorials are in the works for later this week, so in the meantime check out this review of Jo Cook’s artsy zine “Double Never”.
Name: Jo Cook
City: Mayne Island, BC, Canada
Zine Goal: Don’t know. Shouldn’t know. It’s gotta flow.
If the bright yellow cover doesn’t capture your attention, the contents of the zine will. As Jo explains on the last page, the zine came about with the help of a friend and the random selection of 24 books off of Jo’s bookshelf. The layout of the zine is also appealing to the eye, featuring smudgy typewritten text and bold, blocky graphics. While the text may not make too much sense when taking out of its original context, pairing it with unidentifiable graphics gives this zine a neat, super artsy feel.
