Zine is short for “magazine,” but usually zines are micro-magazines and just a few pages in length. They are typically produced with 1-2 sheets of paper folded and cut into smaller pieces.
The format that I find the most useful is a zine comprised of eight pages setup on one letter size piece of paper. As a pocket-size booklet, the zine is a highly portable format with just the right amount of art or inspiration.
Beginning with this post, I’ll be sharing a series of posts on zines, including …

Below is a video of the folding process.
