Indulgence is a perzine/artzine written by Eleanor Whitney.

Began in 1997, the most recent issue, Indulgence #10, was published in September, 2008. Whitney concentrated just as much on presentation as she did on her writing and the results were astounding. Visually interesting, her zines often included recycled wallpapers, handsewn bindings, block printed pages and covers, and incorporated unique pockets and folds into the document design. Indulgence was a labor of love and it showed in every single copy she produced, privileging quality over quantity and process as much as product.

Whitney's writing was critical, in depth, and captivating. She co-founded the Portland Zine Symposium, and co-published Riffrag, an e-zine/paper zine focused on queer art, artists, writers, and activists.

Whitney is currently an arts educator and advocate and has written for Bitch Magazine and Venus Zine, among other publications. She blogs at [http://killerfemme.wordpress.com ] and tweets at @killerfemme. She also plays in the indie rock/shoe gaze band [Corita]http://corita.bandcamp.com
