Since 2002, Stolen Sharpie Revolution: a DIY Resource for Zines and Zine Culture has been the go-to guide for all things zine-related. This little red book is stuffed with information about zines. Things you may know, stuff you don’t know and even stuff you didn’t know you didn’t know! Stolen Sharpie Revolution contains a cornucopia of information about zines and zine culture for everyone from the zine newbie to the experienced zinester to the academic researcher.

Stolen Sharpie Revolution consists of thoughtful lists and step-by-step how-to guides on everything from definitions of a “zine,” where to find zines, why they are important, how to make them and how to participate in zine culture. This book has everything you need to get started creating your own zine, or to figure out what to do with the zine you just made.

Stolen Sharpie Revolution serves as both an introduction into the wide world of zine culture and as a guide to taking the next step to become a part of it.

14Let’s Make a Zine! by Comet Crowbar

2010. 8 pages, A7
This is a little introductory zine that I would give away at the zine workshops I do. It’s folded from one sheet of paper, with no staples. The perfect lil’ somthing to give to a friend curious about “what’s the deal with these little things??”



9Paper X-ray by Comet Crowbar
2012. 16 different-colored pages, hand sewn, smaller than A.

This art zine is printed in an edition of 31, and made using a RISOGRAPH machine (kind of like mechanical screen-printing) Paper X-ray is a quest to examine my body (teeth, hands) and other things (trees, typewritters) through a process of pencil-rubbing on paper. The drawings in here are, literally, paper x-rays.
Made during a lovely workshop at the Kotti Shop.
