zine recommendations  
for those of you who are into zines,
recommend me some MUST READ issues.
and if possible, where to obtain them from (ie, distros that carry them or the writer's website etc)
i think i might order some from moon rocket because honestly, i think she has the best catalogue AND i'm all for supporting new zealand small business since there aren't really any distros in australia anymore (that seem to be updated anyway). but there are also other zine titles i've heard thrown about, like on the pander forums etc that i'd be interested in, but i can't order all of them.
so, tell me which zines are your favourites :)
ta, lovelies.

don't fall asleep #4 is great. it's not very text heavy, but i love the mix of images and words together. it's a lovely fast read and i always love rereading it. you can find it at moonrocket. ♥
ps, i haven't read them, but the i am a camera zines sound really interesting.

Kneehigh by Missy Kulik is adorable! It's three tiny zines of love.
I also really enjoyed Taryn Hipp's Home, Fawne D's Four Star Daydream #6 and Born Ready #6. All are from my my. I've got a bunch of others, but I've not gotten to them yet. I like zines with cute pictures the best.

I was actually going to ask you to recommend some to me :)

have you read any of Cristy Road's Green Zine's? her illustrations are amazing.
i'll see what zines i have left over from my distro that have pictures etc in them and send them as part of our swap, okay? i know i have copies of Sobstory #5, Girl Swirl 11 (have you read that one?), Perceptions, Cultor Sore #15... let me know if you've read any of those :)

I have Girl Swirl 11 waiting to be read, but I've not seen any of the others. That would be awesome. Thanks!

Any Brainscan and Girl Swirl, which you can get from Moonrocket and Pander. Also, Idle Tuesday which you can get through Violet [misseskisses on lj] and http://www.geocities.com/idletuesdayzine/

vitaphobia #8 is definitely one of my fav's & can get it from my distro (well soon anyway, it's on reorder). i haven't jumped into my rather large pile of newly acquired zines yet, but i will let you know if i run into any that are worth a mention to you :)
Charlotte Sometimeenterthereverie on March 1st, 2005 07:49 am (UTC)

what is your distro?
* Sarwingedmuse on March 1st, 2005 03:31 pm (UTC)

i sold all my copies of vitaphobia #8 pretty quickly. shall be getting more some day soon. bizarre associations is also another of my favorites, but it's out of print :\
