a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Printaissance #4 : The Fall of the American Empire is new available!
The fourth issue is a socio-political lit zine which uses historical accounts, modern day headlines, poetry, angry hippie insights and more to compile this ranty look at the parallels in the fall of Rome and the looming fall of the 'American' Empire. It is titled The Fall of the American Empire as a foreshadowing, and foreboding, hint at this possible future that it seems the United States is barreling towards. This issue is certainly an opinionated romp through the darker side of our country and is not for the faint of heart.
Issue 4 (41 half page pages / available for trade)
These are the two zines I created this year.They were each released already but have been repackaged and reprinted.
A tiny zine that reads like a snapshot. 1/12 legal sized (3"x4") 28 page mini zine, A single story wrapped in photocopier art. This zine takes place in an elevator between a 9th floor divorce lawyer and the ground and a bike ride home. It explores disappointments and the human inability to consider endings.
"We rode 9 stories down in silence like shedding 9,000 stories of our own"
1/6th legal (4.25" square) 28 pages with color covers and color fold outs. This is my 24 hour zine for 2011. It was created in 24 hours at the Independent Publishing Resource Center. The theme was to answer the question "what do you do?" I explored the fact that most people want to know how you make money. I have a sort of strange income to some people so this will answer the question. I also talk about the cats that live in my house and how I have learned to love cats, even though I always thought I was a dog person. I also answer the question "how long have you and Paul been together?" in a fold out time line that includes color photos of us from years past.
This was originally sent to the people who sponsored me in the 24 hour zine challenge. also made 50 copies to trade at the Portland Zine Symposium. After the sleep deprivation of creating a 24 hour zine I wasn't sure if wanted it to be an issue of Brainscan. I decided to go for it and after a bit of tweaking and reformatting I'm re-releasing it as Brainscan 28.

Welcome to issue 1 and 2 of my 3 part, FREE, zine release. ‘Screw Your Zine’ spawned from my encounter with a zine-maker that turned in to playground politics. The theme develops and extends through all three issues.
