Who and What We Are

Xerography Debt is a review zine for zine readers by zine writers (and readers). It is a hybrid of review zine and personal zine (the ancestor to many blogs). The paper version has been around since 1999. This blog thing is are attempt to bridge the gap between Web 2.0 and Paper 1.0. Print is not dead, but it is becoming more pixelated.

”Mail art contact zine in the spirit of Global Mail!” joyfully proclaims the information form stapled onto this zine, billed as an “analog beacon in the digital fog” and it’s kind of charming. It’s a pretty extensive listing of different Mail Art projects from a variety of different people throughout the world and folks are encouraged to send in their information. The deadlines are the fifteenth of March, July, November and the issues are published on the first of April, August, and December. Good resource if you’re into mail art.

”With all the zine trading going on I had a lot of zines to write up, and thus Narcolepsy Press Review was born, mostly all zine reviews” writes Randy in the zine’s introduction, and he’s right: the bulk of this zine is reviews (well-written and very interesting) and also includes a very compelling autobio piece about the publisher’s heart transplant in early 2008. Certainly worth checking out for that alone.
