chunk zine now in library
[“Heed the Moronic Dictum” by C.H.U.N.K. 666 and “Go By Bicycle #3” are part of the Library’s new zine collection.]

During a recent visit to the library I noticed a they are now offering a nice collection of zines. Among them (there are 154 in total) are many on the subject of bicycles, and some that were created right here in Portland.

Most surprising was to see one of my favorite Portland bike zines — “Heed the Moronic Dictum” by C.H.U.N.K. 666 — staring out at me from the shelf.

Other bikey titles in the library’s zine collection include:

[From Biff #4, “Goofus and Gallant” by Allie Donahue, now available from the Multnomah County Library.]

It’s great to see these new titles at the library. If you like bike zines, here are some others I’ve come across (all from Portland):

Zines are a neat part of Portland’s bike culture. Check them out when you get the chance.
