Zinester, a not-for-profit, is on a mission to give marginalized people a voice by teaching them how to make DIY magazines, and using what they create for social change. The group’s 6-week workshop in Nairobi, Kenya effectively taught the kids involved in the program how to express themselves visually, through writing and photography.
Craig Atkinson just sent me over a whole bunch of wicked zines from his wonderful publishing company Café Royal. Included are his books Reward, and Zero Gravity, Café Royal 4, Photodiaries by Paul Paper, Welcome to Prison by Zeroten, and The Shaved Guy by Lin Yi-Hsuan. If you’re into zines Café Royal may give you a heart attack.
