IDEA #373: Post Independent Magazines

IDEA #373 is a look at contemporary self-published and indie magazines.

Today, it is as easy to upload images to websites in order to produce a zine as it is to
create a custom tee shirt or a customized mobile device case. These magazines are not based on just-in-time production solutions. They are different — they raise the printing costs, curate the editorial content, and each has an individual approach to design, as well as a singular cultural perspective. This comprehensive approach to production — this folding-in of creative labor — is in itself a special claim.

This issue is 97% English/Japanese bilingual.
