Zines are the maverick inhabitants of publishing's Wild West, where the obsessional, the idiosyncratic and the wilfully obscure roam free across pages unbounded by the constraints of mainstream agendas. This book offers a highly-visual analysis of this phenomenon, assembled with expert fanaticism by the team of Pop theorists who created Highflyers and Scrawl. It showcases a huge, international range of current zines, put into context by historical examples from the hoardings of die-hard collectors. Graphic devices and macro photography inject the reader straight into the world of each, with thorough dissections of their format, writing and visual content.

The beautiful presentation of the book adds a great finishing touch: the dust jacket is a fold-out poster, and a mini zine can be found tucked inside too!
This book is a must for any fan of fanzines - it will inspire any zine writer to create original work - but it will also interest anyone who is into design too....
Interesting, but ultimately disappointing.
