A zine is a small, usually self-published, physical magazine.

At the first Public Math Gathering over Labor Day weekend, we developed a zine—titled Shapes Symmetry Spins at the Minnesota State Fair [pdf]—and distributed it around the fairgrounds.

Now we have two new zines to share with you:

Egg Yolks! [pdf]

Hilbert Curves [pdf]

We’ll be leaving these in Little Free Libraries and actual libraries, on buses, in schools, and in waiting rooms. We invite you to download, print them out, and do the same. Egg Yolks! and Hilbert Curves are formatted for standard US letter paper, which is 8.5 by 11 inches.

More are under development. We’ll share them here. If you’ve got an idea you’d like to see executed (or a mathy zine you’re willing to share), send it our way via the Contact page.

NOTE: If you need help folding your zine, here are some instructions:
