Pig and Pepper?

Pig and Pepper is an infant Zine distro.
We are currently collecting a whole bunch of Zines in the attic of an old townhouse,
we also have a semi-done website without a catalogue (yet):
www.pigandpepper.weebly.com

If you want me to have a look at your zine
or just to chat about things
then drop me a message on this.

Stay safe,
Ben

First Zine up!

We have our first Zine up on www.pigandpepper.weebly.com"There is only one copy of this zine because it has been put together by hand by one man. It is a collection of loose pages, poems, pictures, vandalised MENSA tests and lion king competition booklets. The zine is one mans entire life during the disintegration of a long distance romance and it is quite poignant. I didnt know what to think when I opened the package with this in. I was…See More

Thanks very much for the "friends" invitation.

Yes, I'd be flattered if you distroed DHAMMA LETTERS. But there are few complications, relatively minor.

Numbers 1 & 2 I did on a wordprocessor before I had a computer. They may be on a floppy, but I have my doubts they'd be readable on any system I have available. If I were to send these, it'd have to be via paper mail.

I'm pretty sure I have both 3 & 4 on floppies, and I think I could send those to you electronically. The only problem with that is that the title line isn't in the fraktur script that's in the paper versions. (I physically cut and pasted it on. I don't know photoshop, and was unable to add fraktur to my Word font options.) Now, I know that content is more important than form, but for me, the large fraktur title line is an important part of DHAMMA LETTERS. I would have to insist that it be retained, if at all possible.

Here are the options:

1. I send you paper copies by air-mail, and you reproduce them on your end. (If we do this, would it do any harm to fold them? Or should I mail them flat?)

2. I send you 3 & 4 electronically. You tinker with the title lines (which would be in bold, italic, Times New Roman, converting it into fraktur with a close border around it.) You could send me the resulting scan/PDF to see whether I like it, and if it is, you can go ahead and use them as the masters to print from.

But first I'll send you an issue of 3 or 4 electronically to see whether you really want to distro it. You may or may not, and I wouldn't be the least offended if you didn't. I'll see if I can't do that some time today or tomorrow.

Sorry to make this such a rigmarole.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks again,
James
