ZiP: Zine in Progress (sometimes abbreviated ZZ) is a hacker-friendly, fully autonomated, frequently festive, quasi-quarterly MegaZine, created and edited by Tony Longshanks LeTigre and the mysterious personage known as The Whimsical Wizard of ZiP (aka Whimzy).
ZiP launched its first issue, 7DC, on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, 2012, with a Zine Release Microparty at Noisebridge called My Noisy Valentine
- The $7.00USD price tag covers our print cost with a small amount leftover which may help us recover some of the cost of printing the first batch. We think it's a fair price. ZiP is 60 pages in length, with color covers and an additional 4-page color spread inside. And the articles are diverse and good enough to read, even.
