What makes a zine a zine?
A zine is a self-published, small circulation publication that typically has a DIY or underground ethos.
Zines can be about any topic and are often created by individuals or small groups. They can be produced using a variety of methods, including photocopying, hand-binding, and digital printing.
Zines are typically distributed through zine fairs, independent bookstores, and by mail.
The DIY and alternative nature of zines sets them apart from more mainstream forms of publication.
