Fanzines

The DIY Revolution

by Devin Mainville

The zine culture has been raging for decades, but has remained a very subversive movement, resisting absorption by the mainstream. Teal Triggs brings it up to ground level in Fanzines: The DIY Revlolution. The book chronicles the earliest zines all the way into the modern day with zines like Bust and Giatn Robot. It contains hundreds of images from classic zines such as Riot Grrrl to Search and Destroy. Zines were created to celebrate doing things yourself and expressing who you were, no matter what society may think of that. This book celebrates that mindset by showcasing the art of the underground.
