Zine Review: Pulling Ink
The best zines are ones we can learn something from – a skill, a hobby, or a new perspective. The subtitle to
Rio’s zine is Build a One Color Press & Start Screenprinting. Rio’s directions are clear and concise.The novice will learn about the screen, making a stencil, photo emulsion, ink, substrates, and a step-by-step
guide to building a press. Reading this zine makes me want to try screenprinting a cover for a future issue of my Paper Radio zine. Pulling Ink is well illustrated and is highly recommended for those delving into the printing arts for the first time.
