A zine is an informal “magazine” created in the 1930’s by science fiction fandoms.

The best part about zines is anyone can make them, they take very few resources to create and they don’t require the best of art supplies.

Below is a copy of a zine I created with old magazines and old Meliorist magazines I had lying around my house.

Jax’s zine!

I normally use a piece of printer paper because using my good art supplies on zines doesn’t seem right to me.

The scan I included is a flat version of the zine but when it is folded it turns into a small booklet, there is a small how-to on how to fold paper, but if that’s not enough detail there are hundreds of videos and how to’s on folding zines.

If you create one of your own, please tag us on social media!
