Relax, read a zine

Relax, read a zine poster

We always get excited when a new zine display is installed in the Learning Zone, especially when created by one of the LZ Student Monitors.

Hi Nikole,

LZ: What’s your relationship with zines?

N: I used to love reading books and also spend hours looking at illustrations. With zines I can enjoy those two worlds together!

Relax, read a zine display, 2017

Tell us why you selected these zines for the Relax, read a zine display.

Just like with books, I trust in great opening lines, lines that capture your attention and invite you to keep reading. I also selected entertaining zines, that can take you away from worries for some minutes of pure fun.

With the zines that I selected, I found Study Buddy by Chu/Michy and Coffee Hunters by Bill Bedard very funny relatable — most of the people that I know are addicted to coffee.

I love illustrations so when I opened Frequently asked questions about threesome by Hyein Lee, the illustrations were so cute and unexpected. For me the most daring illustrations were in A Jest of Nature by Marcel Ruijters but overall, all of the illustrations from the zines that I selected were beautiful.

All of the zines have interesting stories and comics, they keep you hooked and have a very happy tone.

Thanks Nikole, for sharing some of your favourite zines with us.
