There's something quite special about zines, don’t you think?! These little booklets are usually hand made, low tech and mostly produced in small runs by the artists themselves. As a zinester myself
, I really appreciate the close insight a zine can give in terms of an artist's perspective and ways of thinking/working. I view them mostly as a labour of love.
Last Saturday I had a fabulous time at the London Zine Symposium, (see my brief review and lots of pictures here
) and whilst there I managed to snap up a few great zines for my ever growing collection. Yes, they're an addictive thing to collect as they come in all sizes, styles, subjects, mediums, formats, monochrome, colour, etc.
So I thought I'd share some images of my zine library and compile for you DA readers exclusively a little list of my current top 7 favorites
– why seven? Well, because it's my favorite number!
