Whatcha Mean, What’s a Zine?: The Art of Making Zines and Minicomics, by Mark Todd and Esther Watson Pearl
Looking for a unique and engaging way for your students to publish their work? Offering a brief history of zines as well as step-by-step how-to instructions, Whatcha Mean, What’s a Zine? is the perfect volume for teachers interested in leading a zine-making project. The entire zine-making process is broken down into easily digestible bites, with great potential for application to individual lesson plans. From brainstorming a topic to write about to distribution methods, each section serves as an example of zine design and layout. Noteworthy are the photocopier tricks and tips for getting a wow factor from a low budget production method.--Anne Lotito Schuh
