FOLIO is a monthly zine specializing in photography and short fiction. FOLIO takes its name from the format it is published in: pages folded over once. It is distributed in Norwalk and New Haven, Connecticut and mailed to subscribers nationwide.
FOLIO is made up of eight 8 1/2 by 11 1/2 pages of short fiction (usually by Jonathan Tuttle) and black and white photography (usually by Alexa Garvoille). FOLIO also includes non-fiction, poetry, and drawing by contributing authors and artists. All parts combine to make a witty, peculiar, and strangely relevant other world.
All issues are themed. Effort is made to keep pictures from illustrating stories and stories from narrating pictures. The content remarks on the theme and the theme remarks on the content.
