The East Village Inky is entirely hand written and illustrated by Ayun Halliday, and published in New York, U.S.A.

The title comes from Halliday's nickname for her daughter India. Much of the zine deals with parenting in a consistently light, humorous tone.

And Other Travel Lessons Learned Too Late,Job Hopper and Dirty Sugar Cookies: Culinary Observations, Questionable Taste. Her first children's book, Always Lots Of Heinies At The Zoo will be published in May 2009.

Currently, Ayun is working on The Zinesters' Guide to NYC, to be published by Microcosm in July,2010. NYC zinesters who'd like to contribute drawings or NYC listings should contact her at ayun (at)

The East Village Inky was featured in Volume Six of 2001's Zine Yearbook, as well as in the book DIY: The Rise Of Lo-Fi Culture, which features an interview with Ayun Halliday.
