Feb 15, Agathafrye rated it did not like it Shelves: could-not-finish , zines. It's not possible to give zero stars, apparently. Jun 06, Emma rated it did not like it. Poorly researched and unprofessionally produced. So basically used her academic position to steal the work of more marginalised writers and artists.
Not a professional or competent academic, and not someone who is an actual part of the DIY zine community. View 1 comment. Mar 02, Artnoose McMoose rated it did not like it. I heard about this book because a whole bunch of zine publishers had been talking about how their zines were used without permission.
I found out that my zine was one of them, so I wrote them for a "contributor's copy" which they sent, although they said that they had already sent my copy to someone else, someone whom I didn't know at all, and we didn't even live in the same city at the time. When she met me, she said that they had sent her my copy. So, yeah, my zine's image was used, whic I heard about this book because a whole bunch of zine publishers had been talking about how their zines were used without permission.
So, yeah, my zine's image was used, which in itself isn't a disaster. She does in my opinion misrepresent what my zine does and doesn't do. For example, I'm pretty sure my zine didn't herald in carftwork in zines.
Some people have complained that Tiggs used their wrong names. For me though, she totally blew up my legal name and used it AND a business name that I haven't used in years, and only then putting my actual name in parentheses. The only way she could have found it out is by stalking me on the internet.
It just shows that the author had no idea the people she was dealing with, that it never would of occurred to her to think that maybe the reason someone doesn't use their legal name in their zine is because they don't want to. I suppose the author would say that she simply made a book to catalog some works for posterity. Zine libraries, however, do a great job of that already. What bothers me is that the author made a bunch of money for her and the publisher off of other living people's stuff.
View 2 comments. A super interesting book about fanzines where he shows his journey through the years and evolution. Has a lot of references that I used for works. I recommend it! Mar 26, Marissa rated it it was ok. This book is beautifully designed and arranged, and it's very much the sort of book you'd want to hold up as representative of the zine world of the past 25 or so years, but sadly it falls short. There are several errors and mis-attributions which will be obvious to anyone who has been involved in zines for a while.
As someone who makes zines, I would have loved to be a part of a comprehensive survey of zines such as this one. But knowing about the failures in research, I'm happy to not have been included. May 06, Chloe rated it liked it. Controversial book, riddled with mostly minor inaccuracies. The author pissed off a bunch of zines publishers by reprinting their work without permission.
I am personally on the fence in this case and think it warrants greater discussion. Still an interesting document. Ideal coffee table light reading with pretty pictures, though completely lacking in depth. Apparently filled with misinformation and as seen from these other reviews, seriously pissed off the Zine community.
Feb 21, Joe rated it did not like it. Randomly saw this at the local library and picked it up. Enjoyed all the artwork unaware that this lady received no permission to reproduce any of it. May 21, tee rated it did not like it Shelves: traumatically-shit. Teal Triggs, you suck! Aug 13, Dave Vander Maas rated it did not like it. I read the reviews about the shady was of this book.
I just wanted to look over the art for reference. It worked fine for that.

Fanzines by Teal Triggs – Popup Reading Room
As a good example of successful zine about zines it would be remiss not to include it in any history of fanzines. The book is due out in September and I hope this will establish the importance of this form of self-publishing. Also, what kind of idiot am I for starting a band and agreeing to play a show in three weeks? I wonder if she really used the version of the paper making from SSR because Sugene from All This Is Mine did the illustration s for some editions and I wonder how she would feel about that.

Fanzines: the DIY Revolution
For more than 60 years, fanzines have been one of the most significant forms of self-expression. This was a high-impact one night only visual presentation of the most interesting fanzines ever produced. Ephemeral and irreplaceable, many have been lost to all but a few passionate collectors. Teal Triggs has accumulated a huge collection of zines over the years and has already published several books on the subject, but this is the first of large enough scale to really show off the form properly.
