Hello, I just read your comment in the forums about this being the 70th anniversary of the invention of the photocopy machine. Wonderful! I didn't know this and I'm very glad to have learned it. I do zine workshops and I'll be sure to talk about this from now on. If you do that mail art project on the subject I'd love to be a part of it, or see the finished product. I'll email you with my address & maybe we could do a trade. Thank you! Katie
Japan is awesome, you are lucky to be living there!!! I have been twice, I married my wife there and hope to return there someday with my wife and live in Japan permanently. my zine about Japan is all about the things i love about Japan, fashion, music, places to visit, food. The first issue is going to focus on my visit to Hakone.
Uh oh. To answer your questions, Gianni, um, yes, I did stop doing Cryptozoa a while back. (I type this with one hand, the other is protectively cupping my testicles...). After the book was published, I dunno, it just gave me this sense of closure on that particular project. But I really enjoyed doin' 'em, so who knows, maybe one day...
And RONG is by no means a new project (it's about ten years old now), it's a band I'm in. You can look us up on myspace if you dare.
Jennie and I are working very hard on the book, getting to the "history" chapter, which looks like it will be great fun. We just did a photo shoot for the unconventional mailings--if you want to take a look you can see it on my Flickr photostream.
Nothing there that will spoil any surprises, but lots of funny behind-the-scenes photos!
Thanks so much for getting in touch! Yeah, I am still working with the Denver Zine Library and we have almost 9,000 zines in our catalog! (www.denverzinelibrary.org) - What are the last zines you've seen? I'm up to #9 of my shortandqueer series.
