Zines are generally xeroxed editions of DIY books composed of Poetry, Art, Photography or comics. Starting in the 40s with Science Fiction Fanzines, stopping off in the 70s for the Punk Rock Scene, and carrying the torch during the 90s for the Riot Grrrl scene, zines have continued, as a medium, to push the bounds of what is publishable by allowing authors complete control of their work. This uncensored material is vital to a contemporary library.
We are hopeful that you will share your works in our collection at the Lewiston Public Library's Zine Atheneum.
