The Big Book of Pop Culture: A How-To Guide for Young Artists Hal Niedzviecki Illustrated by Marc Ngui (Annick Press)
With this book, Broken Pencil Magazine publisher and fiction editor Hal Niedzviecki has created a thorough, informative and easy-to-use guide to why indie matters. Specifically geared to young people poised to make change, this fun foray into all things independent lets readers know exactly how they can (and why they should) make their own culture in an increasingly corporate world. This book features all the dirt on DIY, inviting readers to use modern media to make zines, comics, websites, movies, music and more.
As informative as it is entertaining, the book features interviews with young culture-makers, the dos and don’ts of DIY, resources and realistic how-tos. It’s a must read for anyone ready to make their own mark on our cultural landscape.
