Zines

Due to personal reasons, I'm back in Seattle for a few days. I plan to head back down to California in a couple of days, but until then I'll be remaining in my hometown.

While I was in California this last week, I went to a small record store of the kind that have been spiraling out of business the last few years. While there, I saw zines for sale for the first time in years. I figured that the art of zine-making had become history after the explosion of information brought on by the internet, but it seems there is still a market for handmade media. I picked up an issue of King Cat, a decades old series by artist John Porcellino. Porcellino sells copies of the zine on his website.
