Welcome all Zinesters and Zinephiles
This page is open to anyone involved in zine-making and distribution with ties to Noisebridge.
ZinesFromOuterSpace, a discussion group for zinester-hackers, is now meeting weekly, Thursdays at 21:00/9pm at Noisebridge! Come help us plan the next issue of ZiP and discuss related projects. Introduce one of your own!
Below is info and images for ZiP, a Noisebridge-inspired Zine in Progress conceived in December, 2011.
The Inaugural Chapter of ZiP MegaZine is Now Online
February 14th, 2012: ZiP01 released in print and online!
View high-res JPEGs of the current issue here
You may also order print copies for $7.00 apiece.* (Contact info below.) That more or less covers our printing cost, with any overage going to defray business expenses - paper, staples, a stapler, toner (we want to be able to print zines ourselves in the near future rather than relying on Office Max or Stinko's.)
Like what you see in ZiP01 and want to be part of ZiP02? (Release date: April Fool's Day, 2012.) Post your ideas or suggestions here!
Join the ZinesFromOuterSpace mailing list (and wake up the people who are on it right now).
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
ZiP now has its own site, where the full text of every issue of the zine will be available to read free or download and print yourself! See link below.
