How AWESOME to be included in this amazing book. Teal contacted me aged ago to see if we were happy to be included - HAPPY alright! This book traces the history of fanzines from the beginning through to today.


From the earliest examples created by sci-fi fans in the 1930s, now incredibly rare, the book takes us through the decades. Superhero comics inspired a flush of zines in the 1950s and ’60s. In the 1970s, the DIY aesthetic of punk was forged in fanzines such as Sniffin’ Glue and Search and Destroy, while the ’80s saw political protest zines as well as rave and street style. The Riot Grrrl movement of the ’90s gave voice to a defiant new generation of feminists, while the arrival of the internet saw many fanzines make the transition to online. 


So our first ever cover done by Shannon and Issue 6's cover done by Mandy. That seems like a nice way to wrap up mixtape being in such great company!
