Collection at Pratt Institute Libraries and general information about Zines

What is a Zine?

A Zine is a small publication, usually produced by an individual or small group of people. They are usually produced in small batches, often with a handmade original that is reproduced on a photocopier. They are most often stapled but other methods of binding are also used. Zines tend to be focused on a particular interest or theme. Due to the personal and DIY nature of zines and zine-making, they are often produced on an irregular schedule.
