The Transmitter #1

This zine, from New Zealand, is about the best resource for making a zine in the smallest amount of pages that I have ever seen. Sure, some other zines have more content and ideas on how to make magazines, but for the cost (free) and the page count (16 eighth pages) the value is just immeasurable. In fact, one entire side is devoted to lists, including a listing of the zines that the editor’s zine library has, and various informational sources online. Eight pages of this zine outline the most basic ideas concerning how to make a zine, detailing the five good journalistic questions. Honestly, I can’t write enough about this zine, as I was expecting much less from a zine with this small of size. This was another zine that was placed on the free table during the 2002 UPC, and I consider it to be one of my best finds of the day (which is actually something to write home about). If you want a copy, I would suggest you send an IRC to The Transmitter, PO Box 68939, Newton, Auckland, New Zealand, or e-mail me for a copy.
