This is the first comprehensive guidebook to the Zine Movement of
self-publishing which started anew in the early 1990s, and continues
with Internet blogs and publications like Found. Used in college
classes, this how-to volume covers all aspects of self-publishing,
including layout and design, promotion, marketing and distribution.
Historical background covers everything from Benjamin Franklin's Poor
Richard's Almanack to the science-fiction mimeographed zines of the 20s.
Zines are independent, not-for-profit publications that counter the
corporate monoculture of mainstream media, and are thus instrumental in
keeping the torch of liberty and freethinking burning. Some very funny
stories and illustrations punctuate this alternative-culture document
from the underground.
