I am watching my teen nieces and nephews post song lyrics as their status updates on Facebook and I've been transported back to the time when song lyrics were everything.

(Truthfully, I'm still a sucker for a good song lyric.)

Let's make a zine illustrating our favorite song lyrics. You can do the whole song if you want or just the chorus or stanza that speaks to you. The illustration can be with collage, drawing, mixed media, whatever floats your boat. You will be sending the zine to 3 partners.


  • Pick a song that has lyrics that speak to you. Illustrate them as you choose in a zine.
  • Somewhere on the zine, identify the title of the song and the artist.
  • Send copies of your zine to your partners (No originals!)

I check profiles before I assign partners. This includes ratings, dashboard, and comments. I will angel if needed but you are missing out on some real nostalgia if you flake.

Thanks for hosting this zine swap. I'm so happy to see more zine interest on swapbot recently. :)

Just a quick clarification question: any zine size requirements or restrictions?

I'm thinking a single page zine. Those 8 spaces are pretty great. I have a link to you tube in how to fold a single page into an 8 page booklet.
