    1. in retrospect, i m amazed that i had such high hopes for this book not that my hopes were especially stratospheric, but that i had hopes at all is really kind of sad i should have known from experience that books about zines are pretty much always a complete letdown, they miss the point, they contain ridiculous quantities of misinformation, they seek to commercialize trivialize a part of my life that is huge, important, personal i need to just stop reading books about zines this one claims to te [...]

    2. I realize I am quite late to the party, but I am now in love with zines I want to read them, make them, and give them away I was prompted to start reading this book because I decided to change up the final project in a class I am teaching, so instead of annotated bibliographies zines This book inspired me to not only learn how to make and teach the art of zines but also to brainstorm what zine projects I could still undertake this summer as fun side projects Great instructions and ideas I am sur [...]

    3. I couldn t get into this book As a linear reader, I found this book extremely hard to read and it was obvious to me that I wouldn t much enjoy reading zines either However, for a reader who likes unraveling each page full of handwriting and drawings that do not necessarily tell one cohesive story I m sure many readers would find this book informative and fun I did like that it was written in the format of the genre it was describing, and includes very specific instructions on the construction of [...]

    4. An amazing resource motivation for starting a zine Suggestions are given for zine topics, printing and binding techniques, and distribution Wish there was a little in terms of online resources but I also recognize that it may be a conscious choice to leave this out.This book is in my library s Juvenile nonfiction section, but it is targeted toward adults All language is appropriate for children, but the details depth of some topics, including copying and binding, might be too complicated for v [...]

    5. I found this pretty try hard and too hip It s also really patronising and too comics focused I m looking for a good book on zine making and the zine scene for my 73yr old dad who wants to make a simple zine of his poetry, this isn t it.

    6. A well written and illustrated book on creating zines Answers a lot of question, using a comic book or zine format Different ideas are fully explored and explained The back of the book shows different folds, stitches, and stapling ideas to create your zine Best part of the book is the encouragement to create your own work in ways that satisfy you, without worrying what everyone else is doing Very supportive of creativity.

    7. This book is an inspiring, comprehensive and seriously chill overview of making zines I absolutely loved it.It s a very visually stimulating book As a person with attention issues I worried I wouldn t be able to absorb the content very well with all that was going on but it was fine Highly recommend it.

    8. A nice little book for a kid who is interesting in expressing themselves Very basic, appropriate for any age.

    9. I made my first zine a couple weeks ago and realized that if I wanted to make any zines which I do it would probably be a good idea to read up on how to do it This book was a great introduction, full of useful tips and inspiring ideas I loved the overall feel of the book and the different styles of each contributor I am excited to make some zines

    10. SUMMARYIn this book, someone hoping to learn the basics of zine making can find lots of information There are pages and pages artfully crafted with a vintage typewriter and lots of pens and markers by than 20 contributors that presume to inform young zinesters There is a section on the 200 year history of zines, another section about how to make your own zine There are lists of ideas for young people who can t think of their own ideas There are suggestions on how to use the copy machine brillia [...]

    11. I ve been volunteering for the Girls Rock Camp Austin The girls have been rocking AND rolling It s been fantastic One of my favorite things about camp is that the girls are exposed to a variety of workshops My friend s Jess B Jessica Champion the jessicas created and ran the zine workshop Today was Jess B s day and I helped her out and oh man it was so much fun It was only an hour so we ran through a super fast what s a zine why make a zine how to make a zine then let the girls go nuts with the [...]

    12. This is a great book for anyone looking to make a zine It also has some good general advice, like writing prompts, for others who want to make something for the world to see The book made zine making sound so fun that I am kind of considering making one at some point, but I ve got so much on my plate already, I don t think I ll ever get around to it My trouble with this book is I kept reading it and thinking, I prefer my blog and my physical sketchbooks The book addresses the zine versus blog is [...]

    13. A book all about zine making and it s in a very fun way, the most fun I got so far The layout is all either type written look or hand written look The two authors started the book writing about how they got into zine making and stated that they make this book that they wished they d find when they first started their mini comics What s a zine Why zine History of zines Materials exploration What to write about How to do an interview How to do reviews Possible zine formats Experimenting with photo [...]

    14. Salah satu buku di koleksi perpus art craft yang paling aku suka Cara membuat zine, media yang di awal tahun 1990 banyak beredar di Bandung dan dibuat oleh komunitas Dengan gaya manual tulisan di buku ini menggunakan gaya tulisan tangan dan mesin ketik, juga layout kolase, buku sangat terasa menampilkan semangat zine sebagai media komunitas yang mandiri.Penulisnya bener bener memaparkan dari A sampai Z serba serbi membuat zine Dari mulai sejarahnya, semangatnya dan sampai ke hal teknis Mulai dar [...]

    15. This is a great resource book for anyone who s interested in trying their hand at making their own zine It definitely covers all the basics anyways and has lots of testimonials from lots of great people who have blazed the trails ahead of everyone else I really liked the advice on folding so you know exactly where each page will be.Excellent reference pages at the back for where to send your zines to sell, but if you re Canadian you ll have to find another source Some mention of one or two spots [...]

    16. Embarrassing title aside, this book is awesome I wished it existed when I was in high school I can t figure out the book s demographic audience it seems to be geared toward high schoolers, and indeed I found it in the young adult section of the public library, yet at least 50% of the stuff in here I don t think even I have the technical know how to do, let alone the average high schooler But that s just good motivation to try it, I guess, and everything is explained in a pretty simple and entert [...]

    17. As a complete novice, I really enjoyed this book If you are already into zines, I can see how it might not be great it lays out instructions for making a zine, which seems counter to the independent, trial and error spirit of the zine world I did pick up some good tips from the book, but it s main value for me was just that it was creatively inspiring, and I really enjoyed the insights and visual contributions of various zine and mini comic creators Also, I now have a crush on Anders Nilsen.

    18. This book jumped out at me on a YA display end at the library when I was going to pick up King Dork I thought that it was going to be a super cheesy, but it turned out to have really practical advice and a bunch of cool people giving input like Eric Nakamura Giant Robot , Debbie Stoller Bust , Bwana Spoons, and Salee Oh If you ever wanna make a zine, I will happily be yr partner.

    19. I like Esther Pearl Watson, but I ll stick to her comics.This should be called Watcha Mean, What s a Mini Comic The layout is so chaotic I felt like I was developing ADD just trying to read this book Decent resource for young beginners especially those interested in mini comics , but I m not a young beginner, so

    20. Are kids still into zines I think adults who want to think they re cool want kids to be into zines, when really they re into the electronic stuff I probably wouldn t recommend this book unless the reader was really asking for this kind of content or had some kind of project to do there s a good how to section.

    21. I love this book By far it s my favorite of the how to zine books It feel like a zine and again, I love how accessible it feels I am so big into things being accessible for everyone I hate snotty shit I like the idea that a girl in bumfuck nowhere can pick up this book and start making zines and changing people s lives.

    22. Really great information about the technical side of zines If you know a lot about zines already, though, you re not going to hear anything new I really love Watson s Unlovable comic and was maybe expecting something like that That s my fault.Really great for teens and those unfamiliar with zines.

    23. This book is definitely helpful for anyone looking for information about making a zine It focuses on comic scenes and the layout can make it a bit difficult to follow I m not upset I purchased it but if I had to buy it again I would probably go with a different choice.

    24. Anecdotes, practical tips production, distribution, etc , and resource links addresses All done up in layout derived from hand made publications The layout bit slowed me down in reading while making it fun by forcing me to experience a little of what is discussed within the book.

    25. Not a bad book albeit not very inspiring More about the technical side of putting together a zine rather than about how to create the content For satia 2010 05 wha

    26. If you are interested in the specific task of creating mini comics, magazines, or other random printed material for than one person than this book might be for you If you prefer to work on line or do not want to spend your time in the world of zines do not bother.

    27. This book is awesome It has a huge resource section with lots of templates and how to guides for different aspects of zine making Also applicable for people interested in book making jusssssst in general.

    28. Huh Interesting reviews I didn t notice a bias toward comics at all maybe because I m a comics glutton I thought this was a really fun intro to zines and minicomics, very encouraging I loved the look of each page and the mix of formats I can see re reading for inspiration.
