Historical Note

Zines and little magazines are small-circulation periodicals that are often self-published by the author or artist. Created in all shapes, sizes, colors, and formats, zines and little magazines began to appear more as cheap replication technologies, like the mimeograph and the photocopier, were invented. Zines can be literary magazines, artist books, comic books, collage works, journals, or other forms. Often, these periodicals are distributed by hand and sold inexpensively.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Parsons Illustration Department Zine Collection was originally assembled and maintained within the department before being transferred to the Kellen Design Archives. These zines, comics and little magazines, numbering approximately 175 items, range in size from 2 inches x 2 inches to full-sized tabloid newspaper, but the majority are approximately 4 inches x 5.5 inches, or the size of an 8.5 inches x 11 inches piece of paper folded in half. Mostly created in the 2000s, the items have diverse visual styles, suggesting they were collected as examples for students enrolled in the Illustration program. Some appear to have been collected from the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art Festival in 2006, and others were sent directly to instructors in the department. Several are of international origin.
