Kids, today, love having memorabilia from the 90’s. It is a fad that does not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Zines were at their peak of popularity in the 90’s and were and still are a creative way to express yourself.
After reading I read zines to escape surveillance and clickbait. It’s the new teen rebellion, by Jonno Revanche, I learned that teens are bringing back print to society. Many kids can find common grounds in reading these zines and find them fascinating to flip through.
Reading and creating Zines in the past was a way for kids to rebel, but today it is more of a way to express oneself and be creative. Having something tangible, such as a Zine, adds excitement to the experience and it is something that social media or technology cannot give. These Zines create an experience that one can read over and over again and be inspired from to create something of their own.
After browsing through Zines that others have made, I have a different perspective Zines and I am very excited to make one. The possibilities are endless of the type of Zines you can make; Zines can be about anything and you can do them any way you want: drawing, writing, making collages, etc.
