      ** ART ZINES

      Bed Wetter #3 by Christopher, Los Angeles, CA, U$A
      $7.00 : 100g : A4 : about 30pp
      The most interesting design I’ve encountered in a zine in a long time. It
      all comes stapled together and you have to pull it apart to get to the
      goodies "destroy to enjoy" as the creators say. The graphics are slick and
      there are interesting uses of texture. If you’re into graphic design, it’s
      probably worth a look.

      Kitsch//Artificial Respiration by Amelia, Newtown, NSW
      $2.50 : 35g : A6 : 32p
      Collage zine entirely made devoid of computers using a typewriter, old
      science textbooks and dymo labelling. uses jenny holzer & barbara kruger
      appropriated quotes mixed with some of my own. screwed up medical imagery
      refunked with statements all about breathing/living. you are not yourself.

      Kitsch//Trouble & Desire by Amelia, Newtown, NSW
      Mathematical chic meets absinthe pusher, pig boots and an art school girl.
      Photography, digital art, wannabe beat writing, truth or fiction love songs
      and unsent love letters. Digitally printed artworks with transparencies and
      vellum paper and ANGST (!)
      This art/perzine is a masterpiece. Beautifully created and filled with some
      of the most awesome digital artwork that I have seen in a zine. The sincere
      and troubled content is bold, passionate and angry.
      - Brilliant!

      Pleasure Species #4 by z00:g, Newtown, NSW, AUSTRALIA
      $3.00 : 25g : 8cm*14cm : 32pp
      Insane ramblings by a megalomaniac Anarchist using street art photography as
      a background. Very neat. Very groovie. Use this as a guide to starting your
      own cult.

      Raeow by Keg, NEWTOWN, NSW, AUSTRALIA
      $4.00 : 40g : 10cm * 11cm : 24pp
      Slice-of-life mini-zine in the vein of Long Story Short. Great writing,
      cute graphics, and beautiful presentation. It fits in the back pocket of
      your jeans and it comes with a bonus CD! How ace is that?

      Run Panic Bight #4 (Terror of the Anus) by Gerald Roche, Bardon, QLD,
      $3.50 : 60g : A5 : 30pp
      Warning: contains poetry. Reassurance: the poetry doesn’t suck.
      RPB have some contributors in common with the excellent literary journal
      Going Down Swinging, which might give you some idea of their vision.
      Obvious care has gone into the editing process, so every piece feels like it
      belongs there. It’s got poetry, prose and everything in-between. The
      design has the flavour of a Radiohead album sleeve. A very worthwhile lit
      anthology zine.

      ** COMIX

      Trevally of the Shadow of Death by Leigh, Hobart, TAS, AUSTRALIA
      $2.00 : 25g : A5 : 10pp
      An autobiographical comic with a nice mix of stories and yummy, cartoony
      artwork. Follows Leigh’s exploits as a fish n chip chef at a dockside
      takeaway joint. If you’ve ever worked in hospitality you’ll understand.
      Well worth your time.

      ** General Zines

      Cathexis #1 by Katy, Northcote, VIC, AUSTRALIA
      $2.00 : 40g : A5 : 20pp
      This zine combines theory and cinema, resulting in intellectual discourses
      in articles such as the process of filmmaking and the sound of horror,
      countered with the more conversational article on 'weird intense little
      guys'. Another highlight of this zine was the Springer spoof which has to
      be read to be believed! 20 pages. Definitely for those of you interested
      in film.

      I think so #4 by Esther, Footscray, VIC, AUSTRALIA
      $3.00 : 60g : 15cm * 21cm : 30pp
      Almost a year in the making, I think so #4 (talk to me like lovers do) is an
      articulate, thoughtful cut'n'paste perzine, with this issue focussing on
      Review by Jane

      Pick Your Poison #2 by Nate, Minneapolis, MN, U$A
      $2.00 : 65g : A5 : 48pp
      A collection of stories, a lot of which are about a kid Nate knew during his
      early teens, and other stories from around that time. The introduction
      says, "The mini theme to this zine is things you do at an early age that
      seem cool and make you feel rebellious, then years later make you cringe."
      If you were badass during your early teens, you will probably relate to

      Ugly Duckling #5 by Carmen, Fortitude Valley, QLD, AUSTRALIA
      $1.50 : 55g : A5 : 32pp
      Feminist zine from Brisbane. This issue features a good diversity of
      articles on such topics as female right-wing columnists, biological
      determinism in science, the British education system and a funny diss on
      feng shui. It is mostly mature, thoughtful and interesting writing, with
      the bonus inclusion of frightening statistics to launch a thousand rants -
      Which is the only country to have dropped bombs on over 20 countries since
      1945? It’s Aussie, it’s girl, it’s rock, it’s worth supporting.
