This book would be a great gift for anyone who grew up reading and buying and making local zines. It reminds us of our past. It reminds us of how simple things can be.
This book makes a great "bathroom" book.
Anyone who reads this book will be INSPIRED to make their own zine. I don't think you can read this book and NOT WANT to make your own zine.
It's about time somebody explored the world of zines in a proper way!!!! NICE!!!!!
I lost track of who I lent it to last semester, so I purchased a second copy because it is really that useful. I will be more careful this time. Sure, a lot of this zine-making info can be found online, but it is nice to create in an offline, analog, environment sometimes.
This book may seem somewhat odd to some due to its format, but to zine fans it'll feel like a zine right in your hands! Seriously! It looks and reads just like a zine you'd find in the doorway of any dive or on the newstand of any place or on the table of any coffee house in NY or LA.
It's an easy read and, despite some ppl's unfounded complaints, is quite adult but still should not be given willy-nilly to any youngish folk. I guess resposibility is one again the fault and frame-up of others to place on writers and publishers. It's sooo passe.
There's a lot of 'how-to' info in this book and I'm quite sure that anyone that picks it up, whether zining is old hat or ur the proverbial virgin, you'll be zining in no time. I even started working on a new limited-run zine about Hep C and my trials with it right after I read this book! Def inspirational!

It's a fun way to learn about zines, and you get a lot of referents. The way it's designed, full of drawing sometimes comes off as disturbing... Read morePublished on November 9, 2013 by mpavi
Great book but terrible copy of the book. I bought this book on Amazon because we'd checked Whatcha Mean out of the library a zillion times and it was time to just own the thing. Read morePublished on August 21, 2013 by denyse wilson
