Every year, with the help of community members, Indow creates a Window Zine to talk about why place matters. We don’t just save windows, we save the place and history they are attached to. We asked preservationists, photographers, artists—everyone—to share their stories about community and place along with us.

Thank you for taking the time to hear their voices through our zine library. We invite you to join in with your own on social media@indowmanbetx客户端应用下载windows..


Zine Excerpt From 2021 Edition

太阳能染料实验Jessica Chan-Charette



⁠Mama & Papa Chan take a walk every evening on the property when it’s cooler and they love collecting little samples of plant material for me to experiment with. Whenever we use the contents of a jar in the house, it gets set aside for our natural dye “lab” (aka a plastic fold out table on the deck). It’s been fun sourcing material from around us!⁠ ⁠

I’ve been stoked to discover that a lot of local invasive & noxious weeds make great dyestuff. When I forage, I am also getting rid of some pests while I am at it! And no one looks twice when they see me on the side of the road clipping weeds, LOL. ⁠

来自2020年版的Zine Experpt

Mulugeta by Ryan Libby

Indow zine library page spread 34-35

I had lived in my apartment for a year when Mulugeta showed up outside my window. He was beaming underneath large glasses, dressed in a suit and tie. His black and white image stamped in memoriam on a black street sign topper with Ethiopian script. He was close enough that he became a presence in the living room of my second floor apartment.

Before his memorial arrived I had heard his story in passing years earlier. Mulugeta was a refugee attending school in the area in the late 80’s. One night after getting home from a party, he and a friend were confronted by four white supremacists neighbors who were on their way to distribute recruitment pamphlets downtown. His neighbors had been drinking and were excited at the prospect of acting out the calls for violence in their propaganda. The altercation ended in Mulugeta’s death underneath a baseball bat decorated with racist slogans.

Thirty years later he showed up outside my window. Up until then I had always assumed that things like that occurred somewhere else. But sure enough, Mulugeta had spent his last moments just a block away from my quiet apartment, murdered by a neighbor that lived so close to him that one of the investigating offices commented they could have run tin can phones between the windows of their apartments.

个人行动加起来。当我们将这些人转变为集体行动时,他们加上了更快的速度 - 当我们要求我们的邻居和社区与我们一起站立并看看我们的生态足迹因素。突然间,足迹变得更大。

What is a Zine?

A zine is a collection of art, poems, and articles, usually based on a theme, which is self-published. Our Window Zine is made in collaboration with many other preservationists and community members.

See our在线Zine提交page.

Previous themes have included redefining historic preservation and expanding its accessibility, vintage neon signs, widows (it is a window zine) and the importance of historic preservation. You can view them all above in our online zine library.

Want to create your own zine? We have a page full ofZine思想including a downloadable mini zine template that will help you get started.



Our zine library wouldn’t exist without the help and contributions from our amazing community. Preservationists turned artist and artists turned preservatist stitched this online zine together each year. Your voice could be added to the list.
