Cover of Punk: Periodical Collection and cassette tape, Jan Van Eyck Academie, 2012. English, 192 pp, 500 copies, 16.5 × 23.5 cm, offset in black. ISBN: 978-90-72076--57-1

A book on self-publishing practices assembling interviews interspersed with a series of collages made during a collective graphic experiment at the Jan van Eyck Academie.
In the series of interviews, Christophe Boutin, Didier Christen, Hans-Christian Dany, Stephan Dillemuth, Martijn Haas, Roberto Ohrt, Gee Vaucher and others speak about anarcho-punk, bohemian research, city magazines, design, Do-It-Yourself, fanzines, open houses, imposters, insults, means of production, post-punk, pre-Xerox, self-organization, the Situationist International, strategy and zines.

The first half of fanzine stands for fan as in fanatic. The fan makes a fanzine about his or her idol. The word punkzine came as a substitute at a point when punk rejected fanaticism, which has to do with adoration. Zines are not designed; rather, they are made. Making a zine could be a way to become a designer, but it may also be a way out of the position of designer. On the one hand, it is a question of self-empowerment: rather making a zine than inscribing oneself into existing magazines. On the other hand, it is about overstepping the boundaries of a profession, in order to play several roles as a dilettante. Punkzines are not solely interesting as the visual style of a bygone epoch, as a source of inspiration or for direct recuperation. Rather, things may be learned from a study of the spirit in which they were made.
