On her blog, The Lesen Lounge, Berliner by-way-of Canada Leah Buckareff defines a zine as "an independently produced publication. Most often they are self or hand-made books that vary in content, but usually house the creators' personal thoughts, ideas, or artwork both in text and images."
An avid artist and musician, Buckareff has set out to draw a greater awareness of zine publication from the Berlin community. She will ride out through parks every weekend on her "Lesen Lounge," a bike with a brightly painted zine library attached.
