About thankubody Zines

thankubody Zines launched in 2019 by Kim Rounsefell with publications to support body image, mental health and self care. 

 

What is a Zine (z-ee-n)?

Zines are independent publications— much like magazines that have a small distribution. They come in all shapes, sizes, and genres and have become a big part of our popular culture due to their ability for zine makers (zinesters) to express themselves and share ideas freely.  

 

How thankubody Zines began

Kim — a graphic designer and dietitian — fell in love with zines for their public accessibility and use as companion tools to support community health and wellbeing.

Since launch, we’ve steadily grown our zine collection to feature zines from other talented zinesters, including health professional zinesters!, sharing broader experiences and insights to these critical areas of health.

Nurturing creativity and self-expression are core to our mission. We donate a portion every sale to support non-profit organizations that integrate creativity as part of community programs.

Our bodies aren’t perfect, but they are always trying to keep us safe. Sometimes we need to say “thank you body.”
