Zines (Zeeeenneezz)

Zines (no it is not pronounced like the previously canceled app Vine but with a z) are almost like a book, excluding the long, endless chapters with no images. Zines include countless images from magazines or anywhere you can find pictures of the topic really. Topics? Zines can be created very easily, as long as you have access to papers, glue, and scissors. In this article about zines written by Jonno Revanche, he stated that zines contradict today’s view of news via social media and the modern way of sharing information via Facebook messenger or texting. Zines are not “networked.” Revanche brought light upon the idea that printing was dead, but zines are one of the examples that old form of media is still present within the new generation. Zines are very cheap to make and they often connect with the readers. I think that zines are very creative, and they are a great way to express your feelings by physically creating something that is yours and not regulated by word limits and such.
