Format: Paperback
Unfortunately, a great deal of the artwork contained within was included without the permission of the original artists, and in some cases, mis-credited or not credited at all. My artwork was included and I wasn't even informed until after publication. Teal herself has refused to answer many of the emails sent to her in regards to this matter, and has ignored calls for apologies and / or compensation. To make matters worse, much of the information provided in her essays is blatantly untrue. I would absolutely not recommend this book. If you insist on reading it, check it out at your local library, but please do not contribute your hard-earned cash to this person.

Teal Triggs has offended the zine community by publishing their work without permission, using outdated and/or incorrect information, and by failing to respond to reasonable criticism. If you want to learn about zines, pick up Stolen Sharpie Revolution, and don't even bother with this book. It's hard to believe this woman is an academic, given the lack of research she seems to have done.

I could not recommend this book to anyone.

On a flick through, it's really badly laid out and there's lots of noticeable errors eg morgenmuffel and loserdom (both assuredly print productions) being called e-zines.

And it gets worse - turns out Teal Triggs didn't even bother contacting a lot of people whose zines she used. And of course she made more errors which could have been avoided had she bothered to check first.

I'd advise boycotting this book and getting some zines instead.

I like the book for two reasons: the history of zines and the wealth of ideas it provides. The author provides many images and a context for the evolution of zines.
