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.

I'm not sure you could find a more descriptive title than this zine's; the
concept's pretty basic but the results are extraordinarily funny (and the
construction/layout is very nice).. I had to go to the blog to check out
the other Famous Hairdos, especially when I found out there was a
Morrissey issue.  Side note: I would still love to see that one-maybe it
was in the stack tragically devoured by the Postal Service Monster last
month; they actually delivered an empty, torn manila envelope encased in
that pre-printed apologetic plastic bag they put around damaged mail. I
hope someone in the post office is reading and loving that pile of
zines.Anyway, self-described: "drawings by friends and strangers,
submitted by mail or in person, affixed to one xerox of a famous
musician's hair." They're very funny.

Keywords: art, parlor games, Rorschach test, culturejacking

Hi,

This is the curator/publisher of "The Famous Hairdos". Thanks for the review. I would love to send another copy of the Morrissey book. How do I get in touch?
