Zines, Zines, Zines.

Lot”s of creative and interesting people from the BMX-osphere often send their zines my way. It”s a nice gesture and it”s always cool to flip through these things and get a glimpse into certain scenes or a particular persons thoughts, ramblings, doodles etc… These things are generally labors of love and you can tell.

Below are some zines that I”ve gotten recently, and not so recently. I would easily recommend checking any of these out, should you be into this sort of thing. Any support for these projects is always appreciated I”m sure.

Union Press – More of a newspaper than a zine, but falls in line with the category. Well done and large posters to be had.

– From the mind of DBZ. The description on his site says it all. Interesting reads and visuals.

Yo Sick – From Prashant Gopal. Full of photos, illustrations and plenty of stuff to keep your eyeballs occupied.

The Pandect – From Cory Beal. Cool interviews, photos and nice layout.

We posted on Adam Roye”s goodies previously, and check out Ryan Connelly”s ICE COLD (which can be viewed online).

Thanks dudes!

 

Union Press

Last week I received an envelope in the mail which contained the first issue of “Union Press” (seen above). It came from Prashant Gopal who usually flows his YO SICK zine my way, so I was extra surprised to see that it was something different. It was Union Press, a publication for the Canadian scene.

Union Press is a collaborative project that Brad Hill (BMXFU) and Prashant Gopal (Yo Sick) have been working on, and it is definitely awesome. Nice layout, photos, illustrations and articles printed up on newsprint, puts this a respectful step above your everyday zine. When folded out, you get posters as well. We saw the ALYK dudes do something similar for Still Here too. Awesome!

I admire the fact that people are going above and beyond for their scene, Good job!

You can find more info/pics HERE, and buy it HERE and eventually HERE I’m sure.
