Building on Eichhorn's concept of 'archival genres', this article considers the recent spate of zine anthologies published in Australia and the United States as examples of these genres. It proposes that the anthologies are archives of content, form and practice, given that they commonly reproduce entire zines as visual material, not just text, and are produced by members of zine communities. This article argues that the anthologies' narratives, presentation and distribution preserve ideologies of zine culture and that archival genres create spaces for the preservation of practices.
