A comprehensive guide to mental health herbalism! Arranged by symptom rather than plant, this guide is easier to use and more accessible than most. Questioning common views on mental health, the zine also offers a lot of words about living in an out of balance world.

Covered within: anxiety, depression & despair, insomnia, hormone-related stress, substance use & recovery, bipolar, and more...[ continued ]

The first issue of Behind the Wheel is one of those instant zine classics that only come along every so often. Kelly Dessaint becomes a Lyft driver in a rapidly changing San Francisco and chaos ensues. Dessaint, an old-school zine curmudgeon of the highest order, is the perfect guide for this journey—never bought in, ever out of place, always questioning. 

Within: learning the ropes, techwads, cops, required fist bumps, class war...[ continued ]

In Masculinities, Cindy Crabb (Doris) explores how we're each individually taught about what masculinity is. The zine focuses on the role models (positive or problematic or often both) who guided that education and how it played out. As she says in her introduction, she wants to "shake [masculinity] up—look at all the varied ways people are taught what it means to be a man, and where they found resistance, examples of other ways to be...[ continued ]

Filling the Void looks at people's various paths to recovery—the assorted ways it can look and the range of things it can mean in a person's life. Focusing on how recovery can happen in the absence of dogma (whether spiritual or straight-edge) and also how it works differently for everyone, Filling the Void is essential reading for everyone, regardless of relationship to alcohol or substances...[ continued ]

It Only Gets Worse from Here takes the "handwritten inspirational quote art" genre and makes it bleak, lonely, and hilarious. This tiny zine holds 15 unspirational messages to guide you toward your darkest moments.

This is sure to join the ranks of the most popular publications (How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety, Love is Not Constantly Wondering if You're Making the Biggest Mistake of Your Life, Field Guide to the Aliens of Star Trek the Next Generation) in Zachary Auburn's strange catalog of wholly singular oddities...[ continued ]

The Family Fun Manual, Vol. IV:​ Rainy Day Craft Projects for When Your Country Has Elected a White Supremacist Who Openly Brags About Sexually Assaulting Women leads you through a series of craft projects that not only entertain children, but help guide you through your own Trump era desperation. Or, at least, these craft projects acknowledge that your emotions—your sadness about the state of the world, your fear for the well-being of your loved ones—are consuming every part of your being and cannot be ignored by mindless craft projects...[ continued ]

Last two copies! A new issue of Women in Sound zine is always cause for celebration. But this one is perhaps the best yet. Interviews with three of our favorites: Mirah Zeitlyn (as in, indie-pop goddess Mirah), Laetitia Tamko (of Vagabon), and legendary Prince recording engineer Susan Rogers (!?!). It's nuts.

If that's not enough, there's also interviews with Dana Wachs (of Vorhees), Rachel Alina, Felix Walworth (of Told Slant), TRNSGNDR/VHS, and Leslie Gaston-Bird...[ continued ]

Another zine classic from Portland's own Moe Bowstern. In the third issue of Xtra Tuf (the zine all about the world of commercial fishing in Alaska) Moe tries out the old ways. Instead of dealing with the drama on the boats, she joins some friends on beach and hauls nets by hand. What follows is an entertaining peek into a world most people don't get to see.

Xtra Tuf #3 is also a zine epic to top all zine epics...[ continued ]
