I'm on the verge of finishing a newsletter project and it's gotten me thinking about 'zines and underground comics...and screenprinted concert posters and small house t-shirts and book artists and taggers and skateboard punks and sticker artists and wheat paste guys all those folks who still believe in creating things with their own two hands.
People like Flying Guillotine Press with great slogans like: "We publish things."
Back in the far off distance past I had things published by a 'zine or two.
Back in the far off distant past I made comic books that weren't graphic novels because I didn't think such a thing existed.
So what if, with all signs pointing down the electric yellow brick road, someone were to do a 'zine in the here and now.
Because really - and you just need to click on that Flying Guillotine link above - as fantastic as a polished Chip Kidd designed book can be, there's something truly heartfelt about burlap.
