Communal Planning Page For ZiP02
This is an open and transparent page for anyone who wants to be part of the second issue of ZiP: Zine in Progress You are encouraged to post your ideas, suggestions, and comments. It's an online complement to the weekly zine planning meetings we're starting at Noisebridge (see front page).
ZiP02 will come out on April Fool's Day (April 1st), 2012.
ZiP01 was folio print on letter (8.5x11) ZiP02 will be.....?
Proposal: quarto print on tabloid (11x17)
We want to experiment with format, style, size, layout until we find something that feels like the official ZiP style. Or maybe there never will be an official ZiP style - it will be constantly evolving, changing, mutating, like memes, like Noisebridge, like life itself.
Here is some info on ways to fold & format zines for print
