Zine making is alive and well

But zine making is alive and well, as evidenced by the zine fairs that have popped up across the country in the last few years. At the Chicago Zine Fest in February, three floors of the Ludington Building at Columbia College were packed with rows of exhibitors’ tables. The event resembled something between a craft fair and a trade show, with zines stacked in messy piles and young artists sitting patiently, waiting for patrons to stop by and ask about their newest product, and maybe even shell out a few dollars for a copy.

This makes me feel guilt that I gave up on zining so long ago and lame for keeping the name of this publication, which was a real zine many years ago, but hasn’t been much more than a place to bookmark my internet discoveries in a very long time.

  1. It’s never too late to bring back Tangzine. I’m sure we can find a photocopier at a church somewhere to mooch.
