a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I´m a Yank living in Spain. I self-publish two zines.
My perzine is called "EXTRANJERO" which means "foreigner" or "stranger" in Spanish. The zine is about my life in Spain with my Spanish partner. The first issue came out in Spring 2004 & the seventh issue came out of the photocopier in summer 2008. All back issues are long gone, but I still have a handful of issue #7. Drop me a line.
My other zine is a contributor-driven project called "Going Postal!". The purpose of "GP!" is to explore different aspects of zine & mail art history, to give active participants in these overlapping movements a place to voice their ideas & opinions, & to give me a new creative outlet to ensure that I don´t lose my sanity any time soon. The first issue includes writing & artwork by Christoph Meyer, Irving Stettner, Dale Speirs, Arthur Moyse, Peter Good, Dave Cunliffe, David Peers, John Held, Jr., Bob "Guinea Pig Zero" Helms, John Mountain, Vittore Baroni, Steve Bailey, Anita Michel, Ryosuke Cohen, Olaf Ladousse, Davida Gypsy Breier, Gianni Simone, Natali Belova, etc... The second issue is out now.
Both of my zines are available for "The Usual" which means a trade, a donation of stamps or cash, or (if you´re really down on your luck) an interesting letter. If you would like to obtain a copy of one of my zines contact me through this site & I´ll be more than happy to provide you with my postal address.
Almost forgot, I also send reviews of zines that I pick up on my own to Zine World (RIP) & Xerography Debt.
