ZAPP Zine Collection
The Zine Archive & Publishing Project (ZAPP) was dedicated to preserving and promoting self-publishing in Seattle and beyond. ZAPP collected more than 30,000 zines, minicomics and other self-published and small press titles, which were donated to us by Richard Hugo House. The collection is for in-Library use only.
