Mini-Zine Review: A History of Abandoned Hobbies


A History of Abandoned Hobbies
Jane Cantwell

I got this, A Guide to Being Cool, A Guide to Letter Writing, and A Guide to Op Shopping as a lovely little bundle.*

The moment I saw this zine, I got to thinking about all the hobbies I’ve started and later abandoned through forgetfulness, negligence, etc. What a fun topic for a zine.

This is a lovely full-colour A7-sized zine. It’s a mixture of art, solid squares of colour, and words. I love how it’s all laid out, and Jane had me from “I bought a book. i never read it.”

I’d love to see an even bigger version of this.

PS. If you ever see this, Jane, I totally hear you on poetry.
