A few years ago, during International Zine Month, I made a mini-zine on how to make zines called “Hoe maak je een zine?”. It’s a short practical guide with basic info on how to make your own zine. I wrote it in Dutch to appeal to local audiences and to encourage Dutch-speaking people to make more zines.
About a month ago I decided to make a translation in English and now – because Jo and I were giving a zine workshop in Brussels – there is a French translation available too, with help from Jo and Floh.
Whenever I’m tableing with my zines, I try to bring some copies of these mini-zines, but you can download and print them for free too! Here are the links:
- Hoe maak je een zine – pdf (colour) pdf (black & white)
- Make your very own zine – pdf (colour)
- Fais ton propre fanzine – pdf (colour)
And finally, during a workshop in the summer I made another mini-zine with reasons why I like zines, written in English, called “Why I like zines”. You can download and print it too:
Look here for instructions on how to fold the zines.
