First released in 2005 by independent publisher Marion Boyers, Amy Spencer's DIY: The Rise Of Lo-Fi Culture is a documentation of DIY culture over the years.

"Focusing on the ideals of authenticity and empowerment as central tenants of DIY (or more specifically, the “lo-fi ideals of do-it-yourself culture”), Spencer outlines the way that numerous bands, record labels, and publishing ventures have opposed professionalism, rejected the mainstream, and taken cultural production into their own hands.", wrote the reviewer at Bookslut, September 2005.

DIY: The Rise Of Lo-Fi covers many aspects of the lo-fi do-it-yourself scene. Zines, especially, have played a prominent part in this scene and the book contains many interviews with zine editors such as Aaron Cometbus and G.B. Jones. The history of zines is examined as it developed from its beginnings in early DaDa publications right up to its importance to the Punk, Queercore and Riot Grrrl scenes.
