Sneak Peek from the Kaltenthaler Comic Books & Zines Collection

We’re in the midst of processing a new collection of comic books and zines and wanted to share a few highlights with you. (A zine is a self-published magazine with a small circulation.) Most of the zines in the Karl S. Kaltenthaler Collection are from the early to mid 1980s and focus on music, and punk in particular. They’re an excellent resource for anyone interested in subcultures, DIY, or underground music, and also worth checking out for their graphic design. The collection will be ready for use in the near future, and when it is, we’ll have a post about it here.
