Zine – Domesticity

So, it’s been over a year since I last made a zine and after visiting  Zine and Not Heard‘s About Time festival in London last weekend, picking up a beautiful little zine, I really wanted to get back into it. I threw together a quick something just to get the feel of it again. 

I used some black and white photos I had kicking around – all of ‘boring’ stuff around my house – and threw in some random bits of writing I had buried in a folder on my laptop. From this I came up with the theme and title “Domesticity”.

This was very much a quick DIY job and I didn’t fret too much about the layout – there was a lot of photocopying and double sided tape involved. I scanned the final pages in just so I could set them out in InDesign so as to make printing them on my home inkjet a bit easier.

All in all, the content isn’t great, it was a rushed job but I’m pretty pleased with how it went, more because of the feeling of actually creating something than anything else.

I’m definitely going to keep it up and try some more. My printer massacred my images so I guess it’s a case of working up to a higher quality finished article. However, I do really like the hands-on DIY approach. There’s nothing quite like picking staples out of one’s fingers while screaming obscenities at an Epson SX235W. Bliss.
