Coming to you from Toronto, Canada since 1995, Broken Pencil is a magazine devoted exclusively to underground culture and the independent arts. A mix of the Utne Reader, an underground Reader’s Digest, and Factsheet5, Broken Pencil reviews the best zines, books, websites, videos, and artworks from the underground and reprints favorite articles from the alternative press. Also, ground-breaking interviews, original fiction, and commentary on all aspects of the independent arts. From the hilarious to the perverse, Broken Pencil challenges conformity and demands attention. Issue 59 includes: a piece on Seattle’s Zine Project; a feature about first nations, Metis, and Inuit indie artists; a story about comic publisher Annie Koyama; tons of reviews and excerpts; a cut ‘n’ fold page to make your own “hypo-allgergenic kitten,” and much more!
