This is an eclectic and eccentric collection of zines and independent press publications from around the United States. There is a wide variety of genres ranging from: classic old and new school style zines; political and religious tracts; museum, gallery, and artist publications; punk music newspapers; academic pamphlets, and some other real rare oddities. There’s a definite tilt to the far left and some of the anarchist and early environmentalist zines are outstanding finds. (Exceptions to this leftward drift include some exemplary Chick Trax as well as some New York City Police Department publications.)

This would be the perfect seed collection for any library just starting to jump into zine land, and a perfect addition to any art, book arts, graphic design, communications, media, or publishing studies programs.

A complete inventory for the archive is available on request. We can reduce price for collection redundancy within reason.
