A zine is a self-published magazine with a small circulation, always under 1,000 but often under 100, that is typically made by photocopying pages, folding them in half and stapling. They gained popularity in the ’70s during the punk movement, and can cover any number of topics but often feature poetry, visual art or political screeds.
New zines are being made at increasing rates and Dallas’ interest in them has also been growing, with the recent introduction of a zine vending machine at Deep Vellum bookstore 3000 Commerce St. and the first Dallas Zine Party last September.
That party is back for its second installment from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday at CentralTrak gallery 800 Exposition Ave. and will include tables from over 30 exhibitors from Dallas and beyond, tunes spun by DJs, and hot dogs and beer to grease your browsing.
Admission is free. For more info, visit Dallas Zine Party on Facebook.
It’s hard to leave home sometimes – trust us, we know. But Mitchell Lofts, the premier apartment community in Dallas, Texas, believes it is important to not only stay active in your community, but to also express curiosity about new subjects. This event is the perfect chance to spread your roots and learn new things!
