I love Collaborative zines. I have hosted a few on this site and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience!!! For this zine I would like to try something different. You will have up to 6 partners (hopefully at least that many sign up). This zine will be a postcard type zine. It will end up being a 4x6 inch sized zine. You will mail each of your partners a 4x6 sized postcard (sent naked!!!) with writing on the back (next to the mailing address) telling them about whatever theme they have chosen.
If someone chooses to have their zine about Jane Austen quotes- then everyone will send a postcard with a quote on it. For the picture on the front you could print a picture of the English countryside... or a drawing of Jane Austen. Then you would have a little book all about Jane Austen done do different collaborators with stamps and different art, writing, etc.
So..... here's what you do:
1-Join the swap!!!
2- Decide what theme you want your partners to write about on their postcard and you may specify the types of postcards that they send you. (you must be o.k. with a handmade postcard in case you pick a topic that is hard to find as a storebought postcard)
3- In the comments below tell us the theme you have chosen (ex. Poems, Quotes, Recipes, Favorite Vacation spot
4-When partners are assigned you have 3 weeks to get up to 6 postcards bought, made, written on, addressed, stamped and mailed. (if possible, have postcard have something to do with zine topic)
5- When you receive all your postcards in the mail you can:
1- Tape all the fronts together with a cover and make an accordion album zine
2- Tape two together, making 3 stacks of two, and then stack them and add a cover measuring 4x12 and staple. (I will send a few photos of how to do this after partners are assigned). YOU WILL DESIGN YOUR OWN COVER.
6- Any questions..... please ask!!!!
