A Day In The Air (also known as adita) is a sporadically published personal zine. The publication was started in April, 1998, in Iowa City, Iowa. It is published in a quarter-sized format. Issues 10, 13, and 15 include a compact disk. The issues are technically numbered with a sequence of zeros (0, 00, 000), however Arabic numbers were later substituted for simplicity. The zero numbering system is reflected on the pages which presented philosophical ramblings about "nothing." Adita #7, "automatic", was named "Zine of the Month" in the February, 2000, issue of Maximum Rock N Roll. The first CD compilation was included with issue #10. The most recent issue is "dance, punk." Adita has been collected at numerous zine archives including; Salt Lake City Public Library, Denver Zine Archive, the Chicago Underground Library, and the Special Collections Departments at DePaul University and University of Iowa.
