Queer Zines Vol. 1 & 2

Philip Aarons, AA Bronson (Ed.)
Two Volume Set
Box set including Queer Zines Vol. 1 (second edition) & Vol. 2
The second edition of Queer Zines 1 includes a new preface by editors Phillip Aarons and AA Bronson, corrections to the first edition, and errata. Queer Zines, the catalogue, collects the variegated practices of zine makers past and present, from North America and Europe, and lists them alphabetically, starting with Toronto's 88 Chins and ending with the Dean Sameshima zine Young Men at Play. In a riotous assemblage of more than 200 pages, we find comprehensive bibliographies and sinful synopses for more than 120 zines by Alex Gartenfeld, excerpted illustrations and writings by zine makers, reprints of important articles in and about queer zines, a directory of important zine archives, and a list of zine outlets around the world.
 
With comprehensive bibliographies of more than 120 titles, Queer Zines 2 offers a visually arresting, intellectually provocative, and unashamedly sexy take on the rich output of contemporary queer zinemakers. Including both an expanded focus on overlooked 'historical' publications dating from the early 70s onward, as well as extensive entries charting a new generation of queer zinesters, this second volume offers a broad survey of the vibrant and evolving medium.
Queer Zines 2 includes over a dozen new essays, including writing by Bruce LaBruce, Edie Fake, K8 Hardy, Scott Treleaven, and more. Reflecting the authors’ deep belief in the urgency and vitality of zines as an individual and collective forum, these essays offer both personal and critical assessments of independent queer publishing as an important agent in shaping identity, establishing community, and altering the course of culture more generally.
