A few years ago, I put together a single-sheet zine as a sample for my students in my ‘Make the World Your Art Gallery’ workshop.
Mostly, I was demonstrating different techniques for zines, especially using torn-paper elements in them.
It’s not an absolutely fabulous zine, and it’s not even much about art. I simply grabbed topics that were trending at the time I taught the workshop, and tried to create a page that kinda-sorta referenced each topic.
So, this zine is just a series of random pages. You could probably put them together in any order, and this zine would make equal sense.
Or, to be honest, not much sense at all.
How to assemble this zine
Print the PDF, two-sided, on 8.5″ x 11″ (US letter sized) paper. If your printer asks, tell it to print two-sized and flip horizontally along the longer side.
Then cut the printed sheet in half (horizontally, across the middle)
Place one half-sheet on top of the other. Then fold – and maybe glue or staple – the zine in the middle.
(You can see sketches of how this works at my Single-sheet Zine Designs page.)
As I’d created it, the front cover was the one with “Tour” in big letters. The page that talks about travel should probably be on the back of it. (That is, the “Tour” page is at the front, and then the “Travel” page is on the other side of it.)
But, as I said, it doesn’t really matter how you assemble this. It wasn’t intended to make sense.
You may need to adjust the size or shift the paper so that the pages line up correctly, when printed back to back. But, when it’s assembled, it’s an 8-page zine (four, two-sized pages) from one sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper.
Here’s the link. You can right-click to save it to your hard drive, or you can simply click and open it as a PDF, and print it immediately.
