Zines at the Fine Arts Library

Zines at the FAL

The Fine Arts Library started collecting zines in 2012. The zines in our collection represent a wide range of subcultures, viewpoints, hobbies, artistic practices, and activist movements. There is an emphasis on collection zines related to music, art and creative writing.  We also try to include the work of local and regional zinesters.

This collection continues to grow through selected purchases and the donations of individual zine collections. The Fine Arts Library recently acquired the zine collection of Russell Etchen, owner of former Austin bookstore DOMY. While the majority of our zines are available for check out, certain collections are kept separate in our special collections area.
