a place for zinesters - writers and readers
random... a week ago the boyfriend of a friend of mine decided he wants to be a blacksmith. he even figured out which school he needs to attend to do it. interesting that such an old art is suddenly the topic of discussion everywhere i go.
Do people still blacksmith? I mean, is he going to be doing it at Ren Faires or other exhibitions, or really making things people use in industry? I wouldn't think of blacksmithing as something you'd be able to make a living at, any more than you could at weaving or basketmaking or something, but I'd love to live in a world where it is. I don't know of any zines about it, but he should make one!
