"zines—paper documents, usually made by hand, without any financial incentive—endure. Zines are quirky, individualized booklets filled with diatribes, reworkings of pop culture iconography, and all variety of personal and political narratives." - Alison Piepmeier, Girl Zines: Making Media, Doing Feminism.
"A zine, short for fanzine or magazine, is a DIY* subculture self-publication, usually made on paper and reproduced with a photocopier or printer. Zine creators are often motivated by a desire to share knowledge or experience with people in marginalized or otherwise less-empowered communities." - Barnard Zine Library definition.
