A zine (zeen), shorthand for a magazine or fanzine, is a self-published pamphlet or book, usually produced by-hand, or a photocopier, with images, texts, or collage. Zines are sort of related to Artist's Books, and to the Book Arts. Visit go.middlebury.edu/bookarts to learn more.
Special Collections has over 100 zines by students and zine artists. Visit us to see them!
