Zines

Our all-time bestselling zine! This is a very small self-care pamphlet by Gina Sarti, who is perhaps the punk rock Sark. It’s fun, concise, and full of little reminders we need all the time.

20 pages, quarter-size (4.25" x 5.5", 108 mm x 140 mm).

Shotgun Seamstress #8 covers so much territory. Thoughts on imperfect heroes and the way that slogans can't sum up systematic oppression. Broadside-esque pages on punk activism, Alli Lowe of The Atomic Tanlines, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Interviews with Afrofuturist Wizard Apprentice, Marc Edwards of Cellular Chaos, horror movie actress Geretta Geretta, and Monika Estrella Negra on Chicago's black and brown punk shows...[ continued ]

In What Are You Raising Them For?, Tim Devin looks at the counterculture shifts of the '60s and '70s and sees how it changed the way people parented their kids. Using '70s hippie literature and the experiences of adults raised in nontraditional settings as source material, Tim Devin examines where counterculture parenting ideas were coming from, how well they were working, and what we can take away from it all today...[ continued ]

When Death Knocks is a personal zine written by Death himself. Or, more specifically, written by a lowly "Transition Officer" working for the agency of Death. A morbid and tender piece of writing from the postmortem zine scene. I can say with some certainty that there's nothing else quite like this.

24 pages, quarter-size, cut-and-paste.
