There is something about the materiality of the zine, you can feel it, stick it in your pocket, read it in the park, give it away at a show. Zines are bursts of raw emotion. Their cut and paste look is a graphic explosion unbeholden to rules of design.

Zines are tangible, are material. The writing is contained in an object that physically ages. Ink fades. Paper yellows. Holding a zine from even just ten years ago feels like holding a historical document. It's easier to place it, the writing inside, and the person who wrote it, in a particular moment in time, to contextualize it. Words appearing on a computer screen, even if they are date-stamped, seem the opposite: decontextualized, ahistorical, atemporal.
