Zines

'The print equivalent of punk...this chaotic, visually enjoyable treat is a fitting testament to a culture that revelled in its joyful immediacy.' i-D 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. Zines offers the first 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.
