So, a zine is a small circulation publication of original or appropriated texts and images. More broadly, the term encompasses any self-published work of minority interest usually reproduced via photocopier (thanks Wikipedia!)

Now what led me to learning about zines was the publication of a new book 'Behind the Zines: Self Publishing Culture', which looks at an array of zines. The zines that caught my eye were the ones published by Nieves, with the amount of illustrators they have, with the most varied styles makes their website really interesting to browse.
Featured illustrators include...
Flag (dimitri Broquard and Bastein Aubry)
Behind the Zines: Self Publishing Culture edited by Robert Klanted, Adeline Mollard and Matthias Hubner, with text written by Sonja Commentz and published by die Gestalten Verlag
