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Teal Triggs has offended the zine community by publishing their work without permission, using outdated and/or incorrect information, and by failing to respond to reasonable criticism.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.

Format: Paperback
Got this from an Austin book shop last week, and I've spent many hours drinking it in. Unlike other books I've seen about zine culture, the emphasis of this book is on cover art. Thumbs up to that. Lots of low-effort charm and inexplicable cultural vomit. Visions that could only come from those with way more passion than patience.

As should be expected, there's a lot of space dedicated to punk zine covers. If I compiled an equal-sized book out of my favorite pages from all of my "punk flyer" books, then the results wouldn't be as visually rich as this book. I can think of some old industrial, noise, and experimental music zines that would have fit in perfectly, but I saw no zines from these music underworlds. Aren't there heavy metal zines? I saw none. Anyway, I love this book.

I don't understand why someone who got their zine cover pictured without permission would complain. It's like some old punk guy complaining because his 1983 Flipper show flyer appeared without permission in a flyer book. Zines commonly picture other zines without permission and, of course, recycle images from everywhere with impunity. But a couple of offended zinesters want to keep people from buying this book. For some people, I guess it all hinges on whether the author showing their forgotten zine cover is able to make a buck. I must have more humility than them; if it were my zine, I wouldn't care. Furthermore, if the book has mistakes, then so what? Go make another zine and stop trying to guard your legacy.
