I recently came across PocketMod in my zine research. PocketMod is a method of creating an 8 page journal out of a single piece of paper, the perfect size for a pocket notepad. The folding (and one cutting) instructions are in the above image. The PocketMod website, however, contains much more than just the folding instructions. It has an online journal customizer, to add page titles and games, like Sudoku, should you so desire.
This obviously isn't going to be the layout design for the new zine, but I did think it was handy.
I have zero affiliation with PocketMod or its creators.
