fanzines are back

Print magazines make a return - with fanzines that are geared towards artists, graphic designers, writers and other creative types. So says a New York Times article from yesterday's Style section. The creators of Lemon, pictured above, are profiled in detail.

Kevin Grady, a Creative Director at Arnold Worldwide, and two of his partners wanted to create "Something that would make print an experience, like a short film or a movie." So they produced Lemon. Hooray.

You'd think that with blogs, there wouldn't be any use for paper-based publications. But I've always encouraged creatives to buy magazines and fanzines of varying interests as creative exploration. There's so much to learn by reading something you wouldn't normally subscribe to. And now that zines are back in style, geared towards designers, there's a load of creative inspiration waiting at your bookstore. On paper. You can touch it.
