Zine Fair 2022

What is a zine?

Short for ‘magazine’ or ‘fanzine’, zines are small-circulation, self-published books or magazines. Zines can take many different forms, including comic strips, pocket books, textless images or magazines. Historically, zines have been a way for marginalised groups or individuals to express themselves outside of the confines of traditional publishing.

Our zine collection

Our library has a collection of zines which are available for loan. The collection includes zines from local and international zine creators and covers an eclectic mix of formats, art styles and subject matter.
