If you missed the Kickstarter, you can still order all the items from my fall bundle. Head on over to the store and check it out! You can also see the titles I’m distro-ing through The Tiny Report.
Limp Wrist, the Micro-Press Yearbook, and the Preston Spurlock screenprint are also available at Desert Island.
I’m trying something new! I’ve been jealous of micro-presses like Oily or Youth in Decline that offer bundles or subscriptions. I’ve never had my act together enough to release a “fall line.” But this year is different! I’m releasing three handmade items this September: a comic (Limp Wrist by Scout Wolfcave and Penina Gal), an untitled screen print by Preston Spurlock, and a zine by me (The Tiny Report: Micro-Press Yearbook 2013). I’ve just Kickstarted this, so check it out!
Gee, it’s been a while since I’ve updated. There’s a reason for that: I started a new blog that I update a few times a week called The Tiny Report. I try to track all the micro-pess news I come across. Check in with me there!
A new book has been added to the shop since I last posted. Check out Forward Looking Statement, the latest work by Jess Johnson. Jess uses what he calls “lost and found text” to create sketches and collages that form a unique type of autobiography. This little zine is just $2, you can’t beat that!
Three comics events in three weeks! I need a vacation.
But before that happens, I’ll be a the Brooklyn Zine Fest. Come check it out tomorrow. I’ll be there Saturday, not Sunday.
It’s that time of year again!
