A downloadable Living tool for Windows

Download NowName your own price

Diadem is another living tool.
It generates zines at the press of a button.
It is built to work along with alienmelon's Electric Zine Maker.
It can generate infinite 8-page zines from images you provide,
creates the necessary file structure and naming so you can just
drag and drop the OUT folder into Electric Zine Maker and play
around with making zines.

Put a bunch of images in the INIMG folder (at least 8).
Run the DIADEM_standalone.exe or if you are so inclined, run the Python script I've included (DIADEM_source.py).
The code has some extra options in like holding on to specific pages of the zine and only refreshing the others by switching from true to false for some values and it also runs on all platforms. Plus, you can hack it and make it do other things like generating 16-page zines. Go nuts.

I have included three sample zines that I generated using Diadem. Also, I put in the concept art I used while creating Diadem in the INIMG folder. The concept art was generated using an AI with various prompts.

Thank you! I'm quite proud of it.


question, is just the tool under cc 2.0 or is anything made by the tool under cc 2.0


The tool/code and the art/zines I made. 

Any zines you make are yours to do with what you please.

Super cool, was stuck on ideas for a zine I wanted to make when I found this!


Thank you :) I would love to see what you come up with.


Omg this is amazing!!!

Thanks! EZM has been a huge inspiration.
