There are thousands of small press, independent zines in publication today, and the Zine Yearbook seeks both to document these efforts and to provide some well-deserved visibility and recognition to people who make the zine world the vibrant community that it is.
Where most books on zines seek to categorize, label, and analyze the small publishing revolution, this series simply lets you decide for yourself by providing real excerpts from current publications. This book also serves as a great introduction for anyone looking for a place to get a foothold in the vast zine world. Contact information is provided for all zines included as well as an extensive honorable mentions section.
