Indymum

Indymum number four includes some cute features, like a music festival review written by an eight year old, and practical tips on how to DIY and recycle everything, including the zine itself. Beyond these, however, there doesn’t seem to be that much substance, despite the zine appearing to be crammed full of all sorts of stuff. The music and craft sections are especially confusing and empty-feeling. Listing songs/bands or naming cool crafters without adding much detail about any of them made this zine good instead of great, but I have faith that Indymum will do better next time. And anyway, the success of making a fantastic zine kind of pales in comparison to that of popping out a sprog (or two, or three!) and raising it to be a conscious, loving, human being. Here’s to indymums Flavia Lytle and Olivia Finlay for doing both at the same time. (Claudia Calabro)
