Not Lonely #5 

A6 (quarter) sized, 40 pages, pretty text-heavy


The latest issue of my perzine focuses on the history of my relationship with the internet (including my first experiences of using it in a small-town library, its role in facilitating my partner and I getting together & why I no longer use livejournal or facebook); and my diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (including a breakdown of its definition, my own experience of its symptoms and a reflection on its validity - or otherwise - as a diagnosis). There are also handwritten intro and outros, a "guess the lyrics" quiz and some yummy winter soup recipes (suitable for vegans). It's partly typewritten, partly handwritten and was made cut and paste style.

 

Please visit this post on my blog for information on how to get a copy.

Not Lonely #4
A6 (quarter) sized, 40 pages

The newest issue of my perzine is loosely based around lists of 4. I write about self-esteem, liking "old lady" things, bad habits, the joys of tea, going back on anti-depressants, things I like/dislike in books (as well as a longer list of my favourite books) & pets, amongst other rants & rambles. I wrote most of the zine on an old typewriter, some parts are handwritten & it's all made in cut & paste style with pretty and/or vintage images.

Please take a look at my profile page for details on how to get a copy.

s This was a fun zine to compose and print out. A lot of work went into the reformatting, scanning, binding and whatnot, but I'm overall pleased with the turnout. It's nice to appreciate your own hard work and see improvements therein.

Hi All
'no one should call you a dreamer' is a 20 page, ltd edition b/w and colour zine of collage, photography drawing and text by me and a personal take on dreams, stories and inspiration.
Each zine comes with an A4 pullout story, called Whispering Hope, which comes in an individually stamped and type written paper bag.
