Fish*Eye Issue 1 Vallely cover by Todd Laffler

‘Zines rule I happen to have a copy of this gem (chock-full of East Coast/Shut/Cheapskate greatness) I also have a Lapper or two (thanks to a generous donation from Singapore of all places..thanks again!)

Anyway I dug making cards/stickers/Photo annuals back in the day. I know the hard work peeps put into their ‘zines. SteamZine Made by Charno and Tag was killer although short-lived (2 issues) I guess The House of Steam really is a really huge ‘Zine as well. So I figured since everyone digs dusting off their photo albums they would dig sending in some ‘Zine media for the archive. I received this issue of Fish*Eye and was stoked, hopefully peeps will email me some cool covers and content.

Never know until you try, so here is a list of some old school ‘Zines if you are out there and are the creator of one of these or if you have a copy….fire up the scanner and send us some love.

email jasonoliva@gmail.com and put zine in the  subject.

    Wez Lundry from AZ (originally from WA) published the popular Pool Dust ‘zine.
    Also, Tod Swank has always been a supporter of ‘zine publishing. (I’ll look to see what I have laying around the garage.)

    Jason,

    I got aquainted with Bruce Adams who did Lapper when I was working on the VA Ramps articles. I used to see them occasionally. If you have those scanned, can you email ’em to me?
