Zines / A Labour of Love

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!

Good Habits, Clean Living

I just received the mother of all packages from Chris Piascik. Long time readers of DA should be quite familiar with his work by now. A simple search on the site reveals we've posted about his talent for type and doodles almost a dozen times in the past year and a half.

The man just doesn't stop. So what came in the envelope of goodies? Three zines (one a collaboration with Vaughn Fender called Eternally Unsatisfied but Tirelessly Optimistic), a limited-edition letterpress print, some stickers and a few loose doodles. Take a peak for yourself »
