Zines are self-published, small-circulation booklets usually made on a photocopier. Often used as a Do-It-Yourself way to share ideas and movements, zines can really be about anything the creator chooses. 

I came to zines while working at a food co-op and looking for a way to share my drawings with the world. A coworker asked if I'd like to make a zine with her and I said yes. Our first zine was about Minnesota summers under the guise of "The Minneapolis Doodle Club." Now my zines can be found at the Hennepin County Library, Minneapolis College LibraryMinnesota Center for Book Arts and other libraries around the state!
