Recently, zines have been getting much popularity. A zine is a brief magazine written by individuals without any establishment. They are often times left at pop up shops, concerts, libraries, and many other places. These zines can be about anything that one can imagine. Some zine topics varying from political and social issues to fun ones about pizza and zebras. The creativity for zines are endless.
