A downloadable Zine

I mean... My name is Beth, Elizabeth is one of the best characters ever, what more can I say?

Seriously though, BioShock Infinite is one of my favorite games of all time. The story is incredible, and there are some absolutely remarkable quotes. One of them really hit home for me due to my terrible memory: "The mind of the subject will desperately struggle to create memories where none exist." 

This zine dives a bit into what BioShock Infinite means to me, what THE BIRD and THE CAGE represent to me personally, and the delight I felt when I realized that Beth could be short for ELIZABETH!

This 8-page zine was written for the #minizinejuly23 challenge on Instagram posted by @blancisthecreative. The prompt for July 11-15 was Fanzine, with instructions to "Share with us what you are a fan about! Movies, restaurants, books, artists, etc!" And yes, I'm WAY behind lol, I posted this on the 28th... 🤣 

How Do I Fold It Though?

This video is a great example of how to fold an 8-page zine!
