Zines are small, hand designed publications that are usually inexpensive to reproduce. Though they can be made digitally, they are generally made by hand and can include virtually any content the creator decides such as drawing, collages, and poetry.
Zines can be created for any and all purpose (or no purpose at all). Dating back to the 1930s with the advent of science fiction fan zines they were also used in the 1970s and 80s as a tool to create social and political impact.
