A JMS Public Service Announcement

Actually, this is more like a public service product review.  Always trying to be helpful I am (he says, Yoda-like..)

And please note this is a totally unsolicited review, that I suspect the reviewee might not ever see, not being frequently inclined to browse the innerwebs seeking public acclaim.

Enough preamble...

I've been wanting to do this for a while.  This being the recommending of the most excellent 'zine ever.  I submit for your contemplation:

I love a good 'zine. These sadly are difficult to find. And they're something you have to see, touch and directly experience in order to get the proper sense of the thing. I found my first copy of this publication by accident on one of my infrequent trips to town, and it was good, no, it was EXCEPTIONAL, cover to cover. I immediately go to the oracle (Google) and seek more info, a website, a blog on this wonderful writer...but, mostly nada. Wha? So I took the next step, and wrote the address on the back, sent a little donation, and asked to be placed on the mailing list for another. To my excitement, i received the newest issue a couple of weeks ago. Again, EXCEPTIONAL from cover to cover. Of course, now I am a subscriber. And you should be too! You won't be disappointed, assuming you like authenticity, honesty, colorful eloquence, sharp humor, yummy recipes, super good line art and lovely and engaging design qualities. Plus! the bindings are individually machine sewn at the publishers own kitchen table, with quirky little individual inserts, which means the whole thing is handcrafted homegrown goodness! If I made a zine, I would want it to be this good. I've even given a couple away as gifts. And trust me, at $3/issue, no money is being made, these are a labor of love, which I find even more appealing.

So, get yourself one. Better yet, get yourself a subscription! Support Good Cheap Art and micro-publishing. Who needs a paper generated by the big multinational conglomerate, or yet another advertising vehicle created by the mainstream media? This is GOOD STUFF originating from REAL LIFE.

For your convenience, I'm posting the subscribe page. You could print it out and use it for the label on your envelope!

You can thank me later, after you've received your own little piece of textual bliss...

Agreed! Letters I Will Never Send To You is wonderful. The writing is vivid, poignant, witty. Best subscription you'll ever have, indeed.
