An article in the NY Times looks at the “return” of Zines – small, hand crafted magazines, made out of love rather than commerce. Zines like The Believer, Lemon, Clamor, Swindle, Anthem, Beautiful/Decay, Bidoun, Re:Up, Archetype and The Drama are mentioned and there’s nods to The Face and Dazed & Confused for inspiration.

Created in apartments or after work at the office by writers, graphic designers, artists and grown-up skateboarders, the magazines tend to be expensively produced quasi art objects published two, three or four times a year with the intent that they will be collected and saved. They sell for anywhere from $3.95 to $14.95.
