"YES PLEASE!I would absolutely love to trade, but currently only have a super short mini zine completed so I don't feel like that would be fair- When I finish this half-sheet zine I'm working on can we trade????"

"The only finished zine I have probably wouldn't be a fair trade (a one page challenge zine, with a real x-ray as a cover) so I understand if you would rather not trade, but I'd buy one from ya!"

"i really liked how you combined ribbon and lace; it's something different from even just ribbon OR lace! the combination works. i thought the photo beneath that one was of a zine, too. that fluffy/furry stuff would make for an interesting…"

embellishing your zine

The first zine I got was bound with red-and-white skinny twine. I'veseen other zines embellished with parchment paper or bound in ribbon. Iquite like those unusual touches, although obviously I've seenbeautiful zines that were "just" stapled!Personally, as someone who can barely draw stick figures, I like the idea of using other materials to add a bit of colour and variety. What are the best/most unusual/most memorable embellishments you've seen in a zine?See More

Hey Klose, could you send any info to raceatinternalmonologue [at] hotmail.com
The lag is ridiculous, I was looking to create a special distro address but I can't at the moment cause my internet is so slow!
Thankyou, and sorry for the inconnvience.
I will send you a bunch of stuff when I can (in two weeks at the fastest)

They're medium/ish books - maybe about 350 pages? Can't you get a replacemnt card - I know in Birmingham its not that expensive...maybe £2 or so (having lost my library card many a time). I read the odyssey a long time ago and I've read a little bit of the Aneiad (sp?) because I had to do it for my Latin GCSE but thats roman so a little bit different. I haven't read any of the books you mentioned so I'll have to look them up.

I just love all of the day to day living of people in different times/cultures, different classes, clothing, food - all of that sort of stuff. I just love history :D

I'll think some more on the Harry Potter stuff and whip myself into action (my issue is that I have ideas and then never write them down). I'm glad you like the ideas...
