Zines – short for fanzines or magazines – are independent or self-published publications informed by the DIY ethos, usually hand-made and of a limited run. They come in a variety of formats and often include both original and appropriated text and images. Topics covered are broad, including poetry, art, personal journals, politics and fanfiction.
