Swiss art director and designer Adeline Mollard in collaboration with Robert Klanten and Matthias Hübner put together this interesting publication released by Gestalten. Behind the Zines is a book that examines the key factors that distinguish various zines. It introduces projects in which the printing process significantly influences aesthetics or in which limited distribution to a small, clearly defined target audience becomes part of the overall concept.
Behind the Zines not only documents outstanding work, but also shows how the self-image of those who make zines impacts the scene as a whole. Through interviews with people involved in zine production and distribution, the book sheds light on various strategies for this evolving media form.
