One a Day by Ari Marcopoulos

Nieves App. All of the images above are iPhone screen captures.

"The immediateness is what makes the Zine such a beautiful medium to work in. An idea comes up and the next day you can have a Book done. Doing it with Nieves is so great because the Zines find themselves all over the world and of course swiss precision printing even on a Xerox machine makes them beautiful objects." 
Ari Marcopoulos

for the multi-touch retina display. Leaf through each Zine from front to back, identical to the original, all in a single app optimised for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad."

Comment: One a Day zine was published in 2004 in an edition of 100 and today it's naturally out of print. 
Like with Tokyo Suburbia by Takashi Homma, making it available digitally is a good way for people to see the work. The photographs on the 28 pages are very diverse, ranging from landscapes to celebrity portraits to very personal snaps.
The Nieves App with multiple cheap In App Purchases is an interesting way to distribute zines digitally.
Four pages of each zine can be previewed before deciding to purchase.
