Did you know?

An additional 5 participants have been added to the Participants page, generic 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, decease so in the meantime check out this review of Jo Cook’s artsy zine “Double Never”.

Cover scan of Jo Cook's zine

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.

Did you know that July is also International Zine Month?

International Zine Month celebrates zines created all over the world. The event/site is run by Alex Wrekk of Brainscan zine. She posted this list of ideas to get in the International Zine Month spirit during July:

Set up a zine reading, check a zine swap, a cut and paste party, a zine fest, or even a simple zine workshop at your local library or community center. Write a letter to every zine you read, leave your zine at random places around town like buses, bathrooms or universities. Order zines directly from the creator, make a shirt with iron on letters that says “ask me about zines”, make buttons with phrases like “zines saved my life” or “do you read zines”. Send out zine fliers with your mail or leave them around your town. Approach shops in your town about carrying zines, donate to zine libraries…..

There is also a Facebook page to keep up with all the International Zine Month updates.
