Lead Image

A fun project for a husband and wife team as they wrestled with the copier settings, the unique content, and their common goals. I look forward to the subsequent issues and how they all come together as a package.

Project Description

This zine was made with love in Savannah, Georgia by a husband and wife team. It is 5.5" wide by 8.5" tall (half-letter size), printed using "Midnight Black" copy machine toner on "Pig Nose Pink" paper, bound together with the finest staples this side of the Mississippi.

It contains celestial correspondence, hand-drawn illustrations, and a full-page interactive horse composition that will have you dreaming of your first crush and your current flame. Plus, look how cute that cactus drawing is!

Other fun facts:
- First Edition
- 12 Pages
- Hand Signed and Editioned

Production Lesson(s)

The biggest lesson we learned was that these types of projects are supposed to be fun! Also, using pure black for images you intend to print on a standard copy machine work the best. The main challenge, that you usually need to revisit for each zine printing, is learning to wrestle the settings of the copier. Once you learn the quirks of the individual machine, and which smooth R&B tracks keep it's motor whirling, the rest of the collating, stapling, and numbering proceeds smoothly.”
