Quantum Whatever

Quantum Whatever was a zine-style “creative journal” by and for Honors Program students at Iowa State University. Originally a hybrid newsletter, QW eventually dropped the
newsletter content and featured mostly poetry, fiction, drawings and photography. 

Matt Kuhns designed a new format as part of a relaunch in 1998, and
produced the layout for three issues. The journal folded a year or so, later;
upon reading of the "Revenge of Print" event/challenge this year Matt Kuhns decided to
participate by reviving QW for one more issue. With contributions from Danielle
Hughson, Matt's colleague from the original QW, Matt designed and published "Quantum
Whatever: The Broken Circle" with a modest print run in September, 2011.

Matt Kuhns is a freelance graphic designer based in Cleveland, Ohio.

Polly Brannan

Polly has been publishing her own fanzines for the last 7 years. It started through her involvement as an artist with  the arts and architect collective public works, through working on a regeneration project in South Kilburn, London, Polly became increasingly frustrated by the lack of local voice in the community magazine initiated through the local council in the end Polly decided it was about time to publish a community led zine 'Stand Aside' dealing with local ideas, questions, thoughts and visions of their local area-from covering fashion on the estates to publishing a zine of an elder residents doodles. The zine ran for a couple of years and had 8 issues.

Since that moment she has continued to make her own zines through her art collective Avant Gardening, a series was produced as part of the exhibition 'Radical Nature' at the Barbican looking at how the local nature and fauna worked with and shaped the architecture of the Barbican. 'Green on the Move' was published as part of the London Festival of Architecture. The zine SQUARES was made with young people as part of the Collaborations programme at the artist led gallery, Studio Voltaire. SEAZINE was made in conjunction with the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate looking at the connection between local residents of Margate and the sea landscape surrounding them.

Romka is a magazine devoted to personal favorite photographs. Unlike most other formats, in which artists showcase highlights of their portfolio or most recent work in order to promote themselves, Romka is an opportunity to discover pictures that really matter: the print from your fridge, the portrait of your lover that you always keep in your wallet, pictures of places you love and memories you want to cherish forever. Since all this has nothing to do with a commercial photographic career, Romka treats amateurs and professionals alike. The project started off as an online magazine in 2008 and finally made it to print with Issue #5.

Born in 1979 in Tokyo, Japan, Kaori has also lived in Berlin, Prague, and New York City. She currently lives in a small college town in Oberlin, Ohio, with her filmmaker husband - Mika Johnson - and their two cats: Pon Pon & Arais, the white cat (a.k.a. Rikun-Taro).
Kaori's paintings, illustrations, and sound collages are inspired by both the animals and plants around her and classical images from Japanese and Western art. After co-founding Arcanum Press with poet Peter Hlinka, the two artists collaborated on two zines, My Shadow is a Cat and Rose-Eaters, which juxtapose poetry with visual art. In the past year, she has joined two group shows in Tokyo where three of her pieces were exhibited. Kaori is also playing the lead role in AMERIKA: a notebook in three parts, an in-development feature film.

Beat Motel

Beat Motel is published every now and then, it’s meant to be quarterly but never is. Beat Motel is a ‘no stress’ publication, meaning we flat out refuse to get stressed over any aspect of the zine, and also refuse to succumb to any pressure levied on us by bands, labels, PR agents etc. Beat Motel has no specific agenda with regards to music, but we like to think our politics are pretty clear, basically ‘be excellent to each other, relax, and have fun’.

Beat Motel is kinda a punk zine but our musical tastes are pretty broad and a bunch of our writing has chuff all to do with either punk or music. We like laughing at childish rubbish but we also sometimes like being serious. We'll be using this webshite to give you information on each issue we put out and a bit of junk about our writers but that's about it. All the actual content will be in the printed zine. We like real zines and don't want this site to become a webzine, not that there's anything wrong with webzines, but hey, you can't read them on the crapper!

Carl Gunhouse

Carl Gunhouse was born in 1976 in Boston, Massachusetts, but he spent his formative years in suburban New Jersey. Growing up, he developed a love/hate relationship with suburbia that led to the angst familiar to most suburban youth. With this unrest came the discovery of the anger and DIY ethics of hardcore punk rock. Yearning to be part of the hardcore scene, he started photographing bands, which began his love of photography.
