Znz started as an experiment by Matt Wobensmith in 2008 in San Francisco's Mission District. It was the world's first "vintage zine store." Previously named "Goteblüd," it remained open to the public until 2015. During that time, it made appearances at various book fairs, museum exhibits, university classrooms, and similar events.

Today, Znz resides in California's state capitol of Sacramento.

Znz is an online store. If you'd like to visit, please get in touch.
