‘Zines’, once called ‘fanzines’, are self-published, alternative magazines that became popular in the 1960s with the availability of type-writer composition and small-offset presses. These low-cost methods provided a focus for special-interest groups concerned with, in particular, popular music, causes, and alternative life-styles. As technology advanced, ‘zines’ began to look more professional, as a comparison of these two examples reveals.
Lithographed. 1973 and early 1980s.
