This collection represents Batya Goldman's personal collection of zines and is composed primarily of comic and poetry zines. It also includes zines on other subjects such as art, culture, erotica, literature, music, personal, zine related resources, social/political issues, and special interests.
Donated zines from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin are added to the collection. No attempt is made to collect all issues of any one title; rather the collection reflects the ephemeral nature of the zines, broadly representing various types of publication in the geographic area of Illinois and of the rest of the Midwest. These parameters are reflected in the arrangement of the collection.
The collection includes research materials Rowe created or gathered for The Book of Zines: Readings from the Fringe. The collection includes zines, correspondence, and questionnaires sent to zine creators asking them to document what inspired them to launch their zine, why publish, tips for aspiring zinesters, and to list their favorite zines.
