On web vs zines

Helen Patrick

Personally, I’d rather have a zine to hold in my hot little hand. The thrill as it falls through the letterbox, ready for me to take a knife to its wrappings and carefully slit them open without damaging the precious object inside, then slowly spreading open the cover, enjoying that heady smell of virgin paper, knowing that I’m the first to run my fingers over its pages… Then taking it off to bed for an evening’s unbridled reading pleasure. You can’t take a computer to bed unless it’s one of those sexy little Vaios, and they’re so damn expensive. Nor can you take a computer into the bathroom.
