Overview

For more than 60 years, fanzines have been one of the most significant forms of self-expression. Often handmade and disseminated through underground networks, the fanzine is credited as being both the original medium for many of todays mainstream publications and the predecessor to the blogging craze. This highly visual compendium showcases the best, most thought provoking, and downright weirdest fanzines ever produced. With topics ranging from punk to personal politics, Fanzines includes both widely known fanzines as well as rare publications culled from passionate collectors. Spanning the history of the fanzine from the early experimentation with underground presses to contemporary and electronic fanzines, this is a comprehensive and unprecedented look at a fascinating phenomenon.

Fanzines: The DIY Revolution 1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Zines, also known as fanzines, are independently created and published homemade magazines on a variety of topics. They are produced at low cost and sold for low cost by independent artists and writers. Unfortunately, a great deal of the artwork contained within Fanzines was included without the permission of the original artists, and in some cases, mis-credited or not credited at all. Teal herself has refused to answer many of the emails sent to her in regards to this matter, and has ignored calls for apologies and / or compensation. To make matters worse, much of the information provided in her essays is blatantly untrue. Please contact a local zine distro (distributor) with the help of Google and spend the money you would have spent here supporting independent publishing.
