Here is an idea I was discussing with @iamkevinv
I think it would be cool to put together a CampJS zine - we could put a call out for people to submit content, craft it together into a zine, and then print a small run for people to take home with them as a memento
Here's a call for contribution for BrisJS or anyone else who wants to spread the word:
Submit stuff for the CampJS Zine!
We need content to make this happen, so if you would like to share any CampJS (or general JS-related) memories, anecdotes, doodles. jokes, rules for werewolf or anything else you think should go in the zine, please head on over to the campjs-next GitHub repository and let me know by commenting on the issue (or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org - Your contributions can be published anonymously if you wish). If you want to get involved with the editing / production process, that would also be awesome.

I put together some random tips for working offline: https://gist.github.com/AshKyd/3cffe04037956913db1ebd00aa0a0aa3
Pull requests/vociferous editing welcome.
Edit: what are you planning to lay it out with? It might be fun to put it together in HTML using print stylesheets, I reckon it would be novel. I'll have a play if I get some time, see what that would involve :D
Edit also: do you have an illustrator?
I was thinking pens, scissors, paper and glue + scanner or photocopier :)
Otherwise in the past I have used Comic Life or Affinity Designer. I used to use print stylesheets for producing eBooks & documents when I was working with Digital Editions / literature. They work ok for text-heavy stuff but it would be interesting to see how it works for graphic/comic style stuff.
I'm hoping that people will contribute their own comics / drawings, as well as using CC-licensed illustrations and I'll probably draw some stuff too.
btw here's a documentary that shows more about zines for anyone who isn't familiar with the idea:
