* What’s a zine mobile? A little traveling library of self-published magazines… Come see for yourself! Borrow a zine to read later and/or hang out in the tiny mobile zine library/reading room.

Current sections include: Do-it-yourself/how-to, healing/wellness, comics, personal zines, political zines, prison(er) zines, poetry/literature zines, field guides, newsprint, magazines, coloring/activity zines, and zines encouraging freely sharing information and resources rather than copyrighting/privatizing it. for more spontaneous browsing, the van’s cubbies hold lots of little zines, organized by shape/size rather than contents/information. feel free to explore!

* share and/or learn zine-making skills (typewriter, pens, suitable-but-not-spectacular long-arm stapler, markers, paper, assistance provided to make a one-page mini zine)

* meet zeik, a 17-year old traveling cat (if z isn’t taking a nap under the van, that is)

* donate magnets and/or scrap to be decoupaged to the outside of the zine mobile to celebrate Autumn!

* donate your zine(s) to this free, circulating collection–particularly seeking handmade zines, resource/how-to zines, zines about bicycling and alternative transportation, zines about making your own shelter, (mobile)homesteading, and zines about self-healing and wellness.
