Michael, thanks for sharing your zines. They are wonderful! I'm curious about the blue tape-like material on the left side of issue #13. Is this a binding and, if so, what is the binding name? Are the loose pages bound together? I have many projects with separate pages that I'd love to bind but I don't know which is the best way to do it. Thank you!

William - yes, an open call - no theme.  12 pages A5 folded to make 4 sides. The ones I compiled were mostly stapled but some issues were loose in paper, cloth and plastic bags.

William - Thanks for the explanation! I've only been involved with 'conventional' zines so far and now I understand the difference!

Bric-A-Brac was an assembling 'zine from the 90's. I did the first 20 issues and then passed the editorship to Patricia Collins and she did a few issues and then passed it to Joe Decie who did a few more issues and so on.

with an assembling zine the work is sent to each participant(originals not copies of the work). it may not be obvious by the pictures from circulaire 132 -  but that's all original work glued/taped into the zine.

For Circulaire 132, t says' Pour participer, faire parvenir 25 originaux de timbres d'artiste, ATC, cartes postales personnalisées, oeuvres de format 8cm X 8cm, poèmes etc... signés et numérotés. Une copie originale du zine sera envoyée à chaque participants.'

They send you a copy of the zine, but what happens to the 25 originals you send them?

No, I haven't taken a look at the Circulaire 132 website yet. I must do that! Thanks for the suggestion, William. :-)
