What is a zine?

A zine (zeen), shorthand for a magazine or fanzine, is a small-batch, self-published work, usually produced by-hand, via 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.
