Evil Twin Publications was created in 1994 by identical twins Stacy Erin Forte and Amber Gayle as a platform for their zine and book projects. At the time, both were living in Amsterdam where Stacy studied design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Amber toured Europe with punk bands. Inspired by American personal zines, the twins began the My Evil Twin Sister series in 1994. The first issue, "Greetings from the Endless Highway" (1994) was Amber's recounting of a whirlwind love affair. Stacy's drawings, which were compared by Rebecca Brown to the work of Egon Schiele (Seattle Stranger, April 1999), accompanied the story.

The next two My Evil Twin Sister zines also followed travel narratives. "No. 2: Hometown Interstate 5" (1996) recounts a trail of memories up the West Coast. The perfect bound novella "No. 3: Ramble Right" (1998) takes place in Northern Germany.My Evil Twin Sister "No. 4: Notta Lotta Love Stories," (2000) is shiny, pink, and more ambitious: Amber's tales of love—requited and not—add up to a searching portrait of modern romance. The work was excerpted in Index Magazine in November 2001.

The second Evil Twin book, Not For Rent: Conversations with Creative Activists in the U.K. began with a modest edition of 1000 copies but is now in its third edition. To create this book, Stacy and her Dutch friend Grrrt traveled through England and Scotland for a summer collecting interviews and photographs of squatters, underground musicians, and political activists. A review called it "...a true labor of love and an ode to some of the bravest and funnest souls of contemporary times." (Vice Magazine, 2003) Evil Twin produced a second collection of Amber's poetry and Stacy's photography, Mud in My Veins, in 1999.

All Evil Twin publications involve handwork and unique details, which accounts for why the zines as well as the books have been collected by institutions from San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art and Yale University's Sterling Library to the Walker Art Center and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Mud in My Veins is owned by the Museum of Modern Art in New York and has been exhibited in a group show at New York's Center for Book Arts (Rare Books of the Future, 2001). The Brooklyn Museum of Art library showed "Not For Rent" in their vitrine during the controversial 2000 Sensation show of contemporary British art.

Currently, Stacy Erin Forte lives in New York where she is the Design Director ofArtforum magazine. Amber Gayle lives in the mountains of Southern Oregon.
