Mini-zine Folding

Helloo everyone,

In case you're having trouble remembering today's tutorial, below are visual minizine-folding instructions from Esther K. Smith's "How to Make Books." Still confused? You can find a wide variety of tutorials online, in both text/image and video forms. Just google: "minizine how to fold"... or something along those lines.

A few reminders:
1. don't forget to mark off a 1/4 inch border all the way around
2. make sure to finish in time to Xerox *and* fold 13 copies of your zine the night before class!
3. if you're having trouble with one photocopier, try a different one. If the school photocopiers are giving you trouble, it's well worth the (ahem) 78 cents total (!) it'll take to print 13 of them on a reliable machine with staff to help you and unlimited paper options.
