I love that there is still room for the printed, hand-assembled, stapled zine in today’s world. Of course Broken Pencil magazine has always been devoted to these indie publications, but another place zines are thriving is Etsy, where a search for “zine” brings up over 75, 000 results. It’s hard to quantify the impact the very idea of zines had on me as a teenager, but I think the DIY publishing ethos has inspired and stuck with me ever since.
