Each issue of Behind the Zines is such a joy to read and warms my heart so much. Zine lifers, independent publishers, and artists of all stripes gather together to tell stories that never otherwise get told. (Like, in this issue, Todd Taylor of Razorcake's journey into a warehouse postal audit with rejected snake meat and live chickens.)

This issue's highlight: an essay from our own Gina Sarti about the ten-year anniversary of her ridiculously popular zine Shit's Fucked: A Positivity Guide. It's the rare story of making tons of lovely connections by way of a small zine that randomly went viral on Reddit a decade ago and never stopped.

Close-second highlight: Jonathan Valelly's deep-dive into the Broken Pencil Zine Awards—a massive, wonderful operation (that old-school zinesters love to hate on).

There's also: zine tattoos, first-time zinesters, postal bliss, experimental hip-hop collective zines, the pandemic zine fest scene, the most unwanted zine, anarchist zine printing, retro zine reviews, and an interview with Jolie Ruin (of The Escapist Artist).

32 pages, half-letter size.

"Lots of funny animal stories like “A Story About Ninny,” “Lady Tuff ‘n’ Tender,” and “Nighttime Encounter with the Void”; tons of Nature Notes featuring Monarch Butterfly Lifecycle and “Shrews Thru History”; an extensive letters section with notes from T.E.

A cool, oddball 2021 wall calendar from Ben Charles Trogdon (of Nuts and Tattoo Punk fame). Using his street art and candid 35mm photos and the wild full-color cut-and-paste style of his zines and magazines, this is unlike basically any other calendar you can buy. 

Full-color, hole-punched. With major holidays. 8" x 14" when unfolded. 

An adored annual favorite here (and with good reason). This gorgeous print/poster-style calendar shows the lunar phases among night-blooming flowers (Queen of the Night, Nicotiana, Moon Flower, Four O'Clocks, and Angel's Trumpet) and makes any room a better place to be. 

Designed and illustrated by Nina and Sonya Montenegro of The Far Woods. Moon phases and dates of new, first quarter, full, and third quarter are depicted for each month and calibrated for the Northern Hemisphere. 

11" x 17", offset lithograph, metallic gold ink on 80# white linen cover stock. Printed by Eberhardt Press in Portland, Oregon.

In this issue, Emma reminds us that "taking care of yourself can take many forms." Within: giving yourself a manicure at home, tips on saving money and budgeting, having an emergency plan and first-aid basics, as well as how to care for cut flowers.

20 pages, half-letter size.

A limited-edition reprint of the first issue of the ever-popular Radical Domesticity! A hodge-podge of tips and tricks. Chore-chart deep-dive, how to fold a fitted sheet, and more.

16 pages, half-letter size.
