This is prob­ably the end of the line for me making zines. There’s no big dramat­ic or bad reas­on, I just hadn’t been feel­ing it any more for quite a while.

However I’ve racked up quite a back cata­logue, so it felt like time to do a compil­a­tion. I haven’t put abso­lutely everything in, because there’s a limit to the number of pages, and there were some old things I didn’t like any more. If a zine number is miss­ing, the reas­ons are either: a- I didn’t like it any more or b- I don’t know what I did with the master copy. (Except for number 35, about trav­el­ling round Germany, which I liked but misplaced when moving house, and never found again)

I star­ted making zines as a teen­ager, and I’m now thirty six. In 2002 I was a sixth former. The inter­net was around, and I was using it (which is how I found people to trade zines with), but social media didn’t exist. Now a lot of the inter­net is extremely commer­cial­ised, and centred around big social media giants, who can pull your content any time they want. Other people have writ­ten in much more depth than me about how there will be a big archiv­al gap of under­ground culture in the social media era. Maybe there is a place for the hand cut and pasted perz­ine after all. Here’s my back cata­logue at least.

I’ve done a hefty book on luxury paper which can be pre-ordered here. Pre-orders end on the 15th of June.
