The issue #1 zines are here! That’s the cover — and the zines as they looked when Niina opened the boxes yesterday — above.
Since the first issue is themed around artists whose work we loved as teenagers, we knew we wanted the issue to look like a school notebook with doodles all over it. Niina did the sketches, and then the amazing Gina of Birds of Lace Press took them and designed this cover.
The zine is 54 pages, and contains essays by Nona Willis Aronowitz, Elisabeth Donnelly, Tom Ribitzky, Brooklyn Copeland, Nina Mashurova, and Judy Berman.
We’ll be sending issue #1 to Kickstarter backers ASAP, including those who ordered both issues. Watch this space for more info on how to buy the zine if you don’t already have a copy coming via Kickstarter (or if you did but also want to buy dozens more copies to distribute to everyone you know).
