My perzine Full Size Render issue #1 is out for trade now! I share, among other stuff, about mental health issues in photos/poetry/prose. Entirely analogue, with Dymo embossing labels, handwriting, rub-on transfer lettering, typewriting.

Call for Submissions: Whatever Saves #5

Whatever Saves is my infrequently produced zine, put together whenever the mood or the muse strikes.  In my next issue, I want to highlight the stories and artwork created by people who don't have children, don't want children, maybe want children but can't have them, or other folks with complicated relationships with reproduction and progeny.  Time to flip the narrative on its head and show the world how the other half (more than half, if I'm remembering the statistics correctly) lives without kids.  
Please submit writing of any genre and/or visual art that is formatted for black and white printing to whateversaves@gmail.com by August 31.  
Please pass this on to any interested parties.  
Looking forward to your work!

Much to my relief FAH #1 is now finished and printed! FAH (Fixing A Hole) is a perzine with mental health issues and personal development as common theme. In this first issue photographs taken with Lomography cameras, an essay on Lomography as a way to play, an essay about society being in myself first and a number of assorted journal notes, with a focus on music. I've a first print run of twenty copies to trade on stock. Please contact me if you like to swap zines!

Announcing the latest issue of my perzine TWILIGHT WORLD. This issue is taken up by a travelogue of three trips in two months; Laughlin, a small pit stop in Las Vegas and three weeks’ worth of New Orleans, LA!  There are also pictures, largely of New Orleans and many of its festivals and Easter parades (3 in one day. They love parades!)

 

This issue is 20 B&W pages and digest size and it comes with a $2 price tag with selective trades. For a $1, you can get the PDF version.

 

For further details, go to donosdump.com/TwilightWorld.html

 

Thanks and good luck

Don-O

 

P. S.: Sorry for the arrows on the cover. I got bored.

At the printer's now - The Real Ramona #2 - The Gone with the Wind issue!

In which we learn about my extensive imaginings as Scarlett O'Hara and join me on a quest to slim down the Atkins way and quit smoking the Nicorette/cold turkey way.  Surprisingly few cats. 48 pages.

Trades welcome. PM me or email me at therealramonazine@gmail.com. $2.00 in my Etsy shop!

Does anyone write about domestic violence? Looking for zines on all aspects, especially post-DV life. Post/message me/whatever, I'd love to buy a copy of your zine(s).

The Ken Chronicles #35 is out & about; a perzine with 28 digest-sized pages (plus covers), and available for $3 (USA) or a fair trade (what have you got?). This issue looks at crickets, bank scams, ingenuity, and sports fanatics, plus reviews of books, movies, and zines. Some LOCs and random thoughts to close it out.

This issue of TW goes a “zine retro” by taking a step back to 5 ½ to 8 ½ digest size. Smaller size but more pages, 18 big small ones!

This time, two damned Vegas trips are chronicled, proof of Vegas culture is examined as I attended a comic/book fest with an appearance of F. Andrew Taylor and son, see a show by Olivia Newton-John and a rare appearance by Shumuck-O Rat!

As mentioned before, this issue is digest size, 16 B&W pages and comes with a $2 dollar price tag!

For information on ordering or trading, PM, e-mail me or go to donosdump.com for further information.
