'Zines of the 80s and 90s
These scans show 'zines in the collection of Marc Fischer, Chicago, IL. Most of these come from the late 80s and early 90s. At the time I was publishing the 'zine Primary Concern and many of these 'zines were trades I made with other self-publishers. Others were simply ordered via mail order or purchased at various record stores.

While some of these were offset printed,many were photocopied. Edition size varied but my best guess is that most of the photocopied 'zines were printed in the neighborhood of two or three hundred copies. While my collection also includes titles with larger print runs, I've mainly scanned the more obscure titles that in most cases are exceedingly rare.

If you live in Chicago or are passing through and would like to see something, feel free to email and we can arrange to meet.

None of these 'zines are for sale.
