Making books and zines, you will exercise your creativity in writing and design. You will also work with tools and materials -- digital and physical --in order to realize the intent of your creation. You may want to collaborate, learn from one another, and share your strengths. It is our hope that the books and resources on this guide will inspire you to experiment with zine-making and to explore related disciplines such as the art of folding and binding. You may want to learn or relearn hand-lettering, calligraphy, or drawing. You want to study page design and typography. You may want to learn thoroughly about paper and ink: their color, texture, and the effect they create in your art. You may want to become ecologically-responsible and wanting to experiment with paper- making and ink-making using plant materials and recycling garden and kitchen materials.
The Library will provide some tools in the Makerspace. Yet we recommend that you purchase the essential tools. They are largely inexpensive and it's nice to have your own so you can make/experiment anytime. You can consider purchasing optional tools if you find them useful.
