This new edition of Microcosm’s popular DIY guide to zine making is updated to address zine making in today’s digital-and-social-media-obsessed world. Covering all the bases for beginners, Make a Zine hits on more advanced topics like Creative Commons licenses, legality, and sustainability.

Make a Zine also takes a look at the burgeoning indie comix scene with a solid and comprehensive chapter by punk illustrator Fly.
