BEST RENAISSANCE 

Zines

Critics' Choice

Last fall, Front/Space gallery brought us Zine Dream, a reading room, workshop and independent-publication exchange. In July, Plug Projects put on its first-ever Art Book Fair. The KC Zine Collective placed a library inside the Walnut Place Laundromat and a DIY distro box on the corner of 39th Street and Troost. Double Rainbow Publications peddles zines out of its City Ice Arts storefront. The writers and designers behind The Bohemian and Undercurrent are chugging out eye-catching, intelligent, community-focused 5.5-inch-by-8.5-inch publications. And, yes, this corporate-owned alternative newsweekly just glaringly (but inadvertently) omitted some other underground periodical that started, like, last night. All of them are contributing to a zine renaissance. Wordpress and Tumblr are great, but nothing captures the feeling of turning the pages of a lovingly handcrafted zine. Keep photocopying and stapling, Kansas City.
