A downloadable zine

Download NowName your own price

Here’s a zine I made about zines; what they are, a little about their history, how to make them, what to do with them, and where to find them. The content is taken directly from the Powerpoint slides I use in my zine workshops, along with some extras. It’s US-centric in its information, but I think people outside the US may still find it useful. Feel free to make copies and share, but make sure the credit to me and Creative Commons license info is present on the back page and don’t sell it for profit. If you use anything I wrote or drew in the zine, please credit me.

Instructions for printing: Print the zine double sided at 100%. Stack the pages with the page that has the cover on top. Cut down the center (horizontally) of the stack and put the lower stack under the upper stack. Staple at the center of the stack and fold the zine into a booklet. Here's a blog post with photos showing how to do this: https://oliviareadszines.wordpress.com/2018/02/05/assembling-a-1-4-size-zine/

This is fluffing rad.

Incredible look and really worthwhile content!


This is absolutely mind blowing. I’m into arts & crafts, but little did I know of this cool craft. I already made 2 zines, before I even finished reading. Thank you for compiling this wondefully wriiten and well constructed documentation. You are the true MVP


Killer content! Thank you. I'm going to try my hand at a one-page zine.


Hi Olivia! I downloaded your zine, it looks awesome <3 I'm a member of a French anarcha-feminist library in Toulouse, France and might want to translate it. Is there a convenient wait to do so? (maybe an editable file, or did you make everything through collage?)
Thanks! Keep up the good work :)


I'll look to see if I can find the original file I used to print the text. How should I send it to you? Feel free to email me. My contact info is on my Itch account page.
