GZEAN 6th



(That'll teach me to scan black and white images in colour.)

Image zines can be total mix bags. Until you actually open them up and look at them you never know if the contents will be good or if the whole thing will have been put together in an hour or two when the creator was bored.

That is a rather negative introduction for a zine I generally liked. So much of art is in the eye of the beholder, but in this case I enjoyed a short amusing cut and paste story about tigers leaving messages in the jungle, a collage featuring a crossword, some weird picture/collages featuring triangles, and full-page high-contrast close-up (t-t-t-triple hyphenation, even if I'm not sure if they're all supposed to have them) photos of a cat and a badger (I do love high contrast photocopied images).

So yeah, if you see a copy take a look inside, and if you're into high contrast images of badgers you should definitely pick up a copy.
