a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Ever just wanna kick off your shoes and hang out barefoot? That's what I did for the entire summer that I turned 10, the last summer I was really a kid. Shoeless Summer is a zine that has everything: school bus singalongs, banana-seat bikes and other 1980s panache, tree climbing, jump roping (that's what we called it), a trip to the emergency room, and the poignance of reluctant life transitions. Oh man, is it poignant. It also has rudimentary cut-and-paste illustrations because I can't draw, but there is a cute foot motif.
Shoeless Summer was constructed partly out of that lined picture paper we all used in elementary school. Nostalgia and poignance: You can only win. So doff your Doc Martens and pick up Shoeless Summer today!
