A zine is a handmade magazine or mini-comic about anything you can imagine: favorite bands, personal stories, subcultures, or collections. They contain diary entries, rants, interviews, and stories. They can be by one person or many, found in stores, traded at comic conventions, exchanged with friends, or given away for free. Zines are not a new idea: they've been around for years under various names (chapbooks, flyers, pamphlets). People with independent ideas have been getting their word out since before there were printing presses. This book is for anyone who wants to create their own zine. It's for learning tips and tricks from contributors who have been at the forefront of the zine movement. It's for learning how to design and print your own zine so you can put it in others' hands. It's for anyone who has something to say.--From publisher description.

This is listed as overdue on my account. I've asked a coworker to look around his home as that's the last place I can remember having it outside of my home. BUT i also have a feeling that i returned this book on or near the due date. I would greatly appreciate it if you could look for it in your system. My coworker left on a two week vacation last Friday without letting me know if he was able to locate the book in his home. Thanks much. Mike. :)
