nicezines – shout outs for zines
ZL – What made you choose to start promoting zines?
NZ – I started nicezines on tumblr in 2012 when I was in university. I did a degree in book arts and design (It was all about fine art bookbinding mixed with whatever design you were into, a sad side of this is that that degree course no longer exists) I love all printed matter and wanted to share all the amazing artists I was finding whilst doing my own research on projects.
ZL – Do you remember the first time?
NZ – Anything by Yoshitomo Nara and everything in ‘Nobody Knows: Yoshitomo Nara Drawing’
ZL – Given an unlimited budget and all the time in the world, what would be the project you’d make to be remembered by?
NZ – I’d love to turn nicezines into a publishing house, that would be super cool and so much fun.
ZL – Why an instagram account and not a review zine?
NZ – I’ve never thought about making one of those before! I love using Instagram though because it’s free and you can easily reach so many people around the world.
ZL – What one publication would you choose if you had to choose something for all the world to read?
NZ – Private Eye I’m a huge fan of satire mixed with current affairs.
