With 21,000 copies of the book in print through 4 editions, Stolen Sharpie Revolution has been the go-to resource for zines and zine culture since 2002. However, Stolen Sharpie Revolution is currently out of print. I’m about to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a 5th edition and I need your help!


I’d like to make a Kickstarter promo video with photos of Stolen Sharpie Revolution, including your photos! Show me photos of SSR on your bookshelf, in a shop window, on a table at a zine fest. Show me SSR with with you cats, dogs, or hedgehogs! I’d love to see a copy in the middle of you floor scattered with zine making scraps, tucked out of your backpack, or being read in public. All submissions that are included in the video will receive a free copy of the book when it is printed.


All submissions must be received by 2 February 2014 Submissions should be sent to: StolenSharpieRevolution@live.com

Did you know that the zine resource listings that have always appeared in the back of Stolen Sharpie Revolution are now collected and updated on the StolenSharpieRevolution.org website? The resources were always the most difficult part of upkeep and a website makes this so much easier. Check it out for zine distros, stores that sell zines, a calendar of zine events and more!  As always SSR is only as good as the information I have. If you see that I’m missing something, a ne zine event, a shop in your town that sells zines, a zine distro that hasn’t been included, please send a message through the contact form on the site and I’ll get it added.

Please reblog and spread the word!

Posting this because a lot of the photos are Portland Button Works related. Remember the weird blue tape arrows pointing to the shop? I still never figured out who put them there!

Using my downtime to make some matchbooks decorated with washi tape to pin button in to ship. I should actually be working on revising Stolen Sharpie Revolution but I’m sick of looking at it.

The little matchbooks that we pin buttons into for shipping.

I was curious if I had a photo of me from every month of 2013 on tumblr. It turns out that I did. I find it curious that over half of them are taken at the shop. I spend a lot of time there, maybe too much time. That last one pretty much sums up my year. When I wasn’t traveling I was at the shop holding shit down and doing what was supposed to be the job of two people. In the end I think I did a pretty good job with it.

A year in selfies…and a big chunk of them were taken at the Portland Button Works shop. Fie on folks who come in and say “I always walk by and you are always closed!” I’m at the shop at least 6 days a week from 9 or 10 til 5 or 6. The bigger question is what are you doing walking by the shop when we are closed?

I like how my hair looks when I sleep on it wet!

Right before I make my 3 minute walk from my house to the Portland Button Works shop. I have such a treacherous commute!

I love my free box tea set I have at the shop! Having some Genmaicha from Emperor’s tea. I love toasty notes the addition of popped rice gives this green tea.

Having some tea at the shop.
