On the 4th episode of the The Modernist Society podcast, we talk about the past, present, and future of zines and zine culture with Steve Svymbersky, who founded the original Quimby’s (Qvimby’s Qveer Store) in Chicago in 1991 and in 2017 returned to the game with Quimby’s Bookstore NYC. We wax nostalgic about 1990s Wicker Park and small press creators of the day, learn about Steve’s favorite current zines, and talk about the many ways that zine culture has evolved. To paraphrase the Big Boys, it will make you want to start your own zine.
Here for your convenience, and in no particular order, are links to some of the many things we talked about:
