Zine Swap

Just in case you were wondering: A zine (pronounced “zeen,” like “magazine”) is a self published, small circulation, non commercial booklet or magazine.  Recently I joined a zine swap.  We had to create a zine using one sheet of paper with very little dimension.  The hostess of the swap showed us how to fold the sheet of copy paper to make a little booklet.  There are several ways to make a zine.  The criteria was to hand write or draw, use a quote and original artwork.  Once you make the page then you just photocopy it the number of times you need for distribution (in this case the swap-20 people).  Here is the unfolded page:

Pages in my 'Homeland Security' themed zine.  Not as in protection from terrorist, but the security of having a safe, affordable, decent house to live in.
 Sentiment: only God can make                                                              Sentiment: Why Not In My Back
a house a home so heaven help the home                                                                 Yard?

 Zines I received in the swap

The quote I used in my zine:  "What is the use of a house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?" Henry David Thoreau

This was a fun swap.  The artwork on all of the zines is just wonderful.
