Things, stuff, and other things.

About me

I live in London, come from Medway, have lived in a few other places too.

If you are a UK person, send me an SAE big enough to fit a 1/4 of a sheet of A4 + a 1st class stamp, and I will send you a zine. As well as zines, I like to trade for viewmaster reels, particularly of South America.

I like detective shows, latin and Sonic Youth. I am far too lazy to fill these kind of boxes out very thoroughly.

I make assorted zines including Fanzine Ynfytyn, Imaginary Uncles, Being Editors, Pobble Eh Come? and other assorted bits of time wasting nonsense.

Fanzine Ynfytyn has whatever I feel like putting in it, mainly articles about strange stuff that's happened to me/music festivals, short stories about the private lives of inanimate objects, top 5s of various things (I have High Fidelity disease), black and white photos and vegetarian recipes.

Pobble Eh Come is a tiny pocket zine of surrealist collages made from things like magazines for hypochondriacs and Norweigian textbooks, it's in no way serious.

Imaginary Uncles does what it says on the tin, 100 word portraits of imaginary and infuriating uncles, with accompanying illustrations.

Being Editors is a children's lit zine. I'm currently working on two issues, one about Diana Wynne Jones (with an interview with the lady herself) and another about Edith Nesbit.

I have a website: http://www.emmajanefalconer.com , perhaps you will care to peruse it. It has details of all my zines.

Here is my Etsy: emmajane.etsy.com where you can kindly send me money in exchange for things

I have some golden envelopes full of zines. They're not quite as good as a ticket to Willy Wonka's factory, but what is? You get three randomly picked issues of Fanzine Ynfytyn, printed on white paper rather than coloured,…

How I make my zines

Posted on November 26, 2012 at 5:11pm 1 Comment

This is how I personally make my zines. There's no right or wrong way (aside from doing things like accidentally making it unreadable once photocopied or forgetting about your margins and cutting off half the text). If you want a more in-depth guide to all things zine-related, I can recommend Stolen Sharpie Revolution. You can see all the back issues of my zines on my…

I thought you might find this interesting. This is a perzine I did about a demonic experience I had that led me to Christianity. True story. I used to be on the borderlines of agnostic and atheist, and I was raised Buddhist, but this experience led me to God. 

It's a very short zine, I hope it qualifies as one. You can read the PDF form here: The%20Incubus%20a%20testimony.pdf

Bore da ynfytyn fanziner! I saw your zine at Ladyfest, it turned out not to be in Welsh which was a bit confusing but still very good. Are you going to be at BZF?

Hello everyone.

The time has come for me to stop updating my LJ. It drives me insane every time I copy over my blog posts and it totally buggers up the formatting, and doesn't email me comments or messages and makes people think I'm ignoring them. So if you want to read my blog, it's here: http://emmajanefalconer.blogspot.com You don't need to have a blogger account to subscribe, there's an email option, and you can use yr LJ account to comment.


BMoskv

I have been busy recently, and the ever-present backlog of photos and so on I mean to post gets ever longer. Here's some photos I took of Brighton Pier at some point. I have no idea when I took them, probably when I lived in Brighton, but I scanned them the other week.
BMoskv0001
They're taken on my Moskva 5, the most awkward camera I've ever had the (dis) pleasure of using. It's an all metal Russian medium format beast that I got in a junk shop in Tallinn. You have to use a tripod and shutter release with it, all that's missing is the fabric hood and flash-pan of magnesium powder for the full effect. There's a clockwork mechanism that is supposed to prevent double exposures, but which just succeeds in locking the film advance for no reason most of the time. It has no meter, and I don't have a working handheld meter any more, so I just eyeball the exposure with the sunny 16 rule. The resulting negatives are huge (6x9 format, there is supposed to be a 6x6 mask too, but I don't have it), you get about 6 pictures per roll of 120 film.


BMoskv0003
Here's the huge version of the first picture:
