Poutine Zine, The Zine about Poutine



In 2003, I made the first edition of Poutine Zine! (Left) It featured articles on the history of poutine, the etymology, tons of reviews and all the passion a teenage girl who loved poutine could muster. Even poutine activism, as shown by the Poutine Awareness Cards.


It also featured drawings by Zeesy Powers, including a centrefold.

The second issue has another Broken Pencil review here. It includes articles on Poutiganism, -where you are vegan except for poutine-, the world’s largest poutine and a recipe for breakfast poutine. And, another awesome centrefold by Zeesy.
