An illustrated character named Jet Lambert takes the reader through the process of starting one's own zine, outlining ways to get interviews and how to publish cheaply and offering tips on producing, managing, and marketing a project.
Why bother with the middlemen--editors, art directors, publishers--when you can just DIY (do it yourself)? With help from Veronika Kalmar, your publication can join the ranks of such zines as Asian Trash Cinema, Fat!So, Feminist Baseball, and Murder Can Be Fun. All you need is an obsession (about which to write), determination, some spare time, and cash. Start Your Own Zine provides a quick-and-easy lesson in publishing, with chapters on nailing down interviews, print laws ("breaking copyright laws can piss people off," Kalmar warns), getting advertising without selling out, equipment, budgets, production and printing, distribution, and taxes. Kalmar lays down the rules, then, in the spirit of guerrilla publishing, tells us which ones to break.
