'Zine Roundup

The modern ‘zines have ditched the messy newsprint and saddle-stitch and appear in full glossy color online. Here are four we love: LA makeup artist Gloria Noto was, quite simply, fed up when she launched Work magazine (theworkmag.com), a quarterly of fashion, art, and design. “I wanted to see more than a pretty girl standing in front of a white wall looking tired and bored,” she says. The new issue explores themes of identity and sexuality through interviews and provocative fashion spreads.

From photographer Dan Monick, My Love For You Is Immense (fathersonspress.blogspot.com) is a limited-edition, 18-page booklet of Monick’s recent solo show of the same name.

Curator, designer, illustrator (and FOAM co-art director) Scott Massey’s RRR.001 (rrrproject.com), filled with illustrations, prints, and “recycled thoughts,” was launched as a downloadable e-zine to honor Mother Earth; now it’s a limited-run book (a second edition will be released late summer). Environmentally-inspired works celebrate, says Massey, “the joy of being alive.”

Oakazine (oakazine.com), created by the founders of New York boutique Oak, is the anti-catalog catalog: clothing and accessories available in-store come to life in exquisitely photographed, high-fashion editorials meant, according to E-I-C Martin Christopher Harper, “to conjure and inspire.”
