Zines I want, zines I'm lusting over, zines you should have in your collection!
"I like kissing. I'd like to kiss most people. I can't really do that, so instead I'm going to write a zine about it."
I Can't Read Lips Unless They're Touching Mine is my first 24 hour zine. I woke up that day thinking about kissing. Why humans kiss and how they started, my first kiss and my first KISS, when I realized kissing was good and the boys I'd kissed were just bad at it, awkward kisses, kisses I will never forget, who I want to kiss in the future...
I ended up with 24 pages (quarter sized) included musings on all of the above, and also some funny facts about kissing (It's illegal in Indiana for a man with a mustache to "habitually kiss human beings!") and quotations about kissing throughout.

From 2003 - 2005 I made a vegan cookzine called The Rabbit Fodder Addict. I still get emails and requests for issues sometimes, so I decided to compile recipes from all three issues, along with some new ones to make the Rabbit Fodder Addict Compendium!
This fat little zine is 47 pages and contains 49 recipes. Recipes include:
White Diamond Cookies
Snowballs from Hell
Sweet Potato and Corn Chowder
Poor Girl's Peanut Sauce
And many, many more!
This is a reprint of a zine I made back in 2003 called Smoothie Queen. Smoothie Queen is a quarter-size (4.25 x 4.5 inches), 26 page zine jam-packed with smoothie recipes and smoothie making tips. The layout is cut-and-paste with lots of fun, found clipart and random backgrounds. The zine starts with a section on selecting a good blender, ingredients, a generic smoothie recipe, and troubleshooting. Then, it's on to 12 vegan smoothie recipes, which include:
Buzzed Banana Smoothie
None. None So Purple
Like a Chocolate Milkshake, Only Not
This little zine is packed with inspiration and mini projects to make your next party the ultimate celebration. You can cut and copy your own bunting flags, copy and print invitations, get ideas on how to decorate a party hat, and more! Included is a fold-out sheet of custom print wrapping paper that you can colour copy and use on every present you give.
Each page of this bright, colourful zine contains party crafts that I have hand made specifically for this project. The zine is stapled on the fold and sealed with a paper binding. It comes sealed in a cute little package filled with confetti.

Lips is fun and artistic alternative to popular magazines that objectify bodies and fail to speak honestly about sex. The pages are filled with artwork, doodles, poems, stories and essays about gender identity and sex submitted by women and sexual minorities living in the South. Each issue also contains carefully researched sex-education material, and local female and LGBTQ health resources.
An infographic zine about UFOs, inspired by scientific journals and looney ufologists alike. Black and white, 48 pages, printed on newsprint.
