Zine print test

In thinking about how to produce my working 'with' Ed zine I wanted to try printing using a simple double sided print from a laser printer in black and white. Sticking to the simple photocopy style zines I've looked at in the past by the likes of Ari Marcopoulos, I think this is a simple and yet still nice quality way to produce a small edition. 

Its slightly complicated laying out the pages to be printed as every other page will need to be upside down just because of the way the printer recalls the page to print the second side. 

There is a certain tactility to the printed zine which gives images a new dimension from normally only being seen on the computer screen.
