Notes From Underground: Zines and the Politics of Alternative Culture


Manufacturer: Microcosm

Product Information

The subterranean world of zines uncovered in words and pictures. This is NOT yet another anthology of the 'best' of zines, it is the first comprehensive study of zine publishing. From their origins in early 20th century science fiction cults, their more proximate roots in 60s counter-culture and their rapid proliferation in the wake of punk rock. While it pays full due to the political importance of zines as a vital web of popular culture, it also notes the shortcomings of their utopian and escapist outlook in achieving fundamental social change. Packed with extracts and illustrations, it is the first book to explore intelligently the range of zine culture, and a provides a useful overview of the contemporary underground in all its splendor and misery.
