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.

2 one-offs from Allison Leonard

2 one-offs from Allison Leonard

Choo-choo Charli: The Cat With The Train-Track Back
4 pages, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, $2 US $3 Can/Mex/World, trades yes

5 Stages of Recovery: My Bipolar Odyssey
4 pages, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, $2 US $3 Can/Mex/World, trades yes

33 Oaklawn Street
Hutchins, TX 75141

So these two zines are both pretty straightforward in their descriptions; 5 Stages is "a version of coming to grips with having bipolar disorder" and Choo-choo Charli is "2 stories about my cat Charli, with quotes and pictures." Both of the zines are black & white and have crisp, open layout; readers don't get lost while they're reading through the material or get sucked into irrelevant details. The pages don't feel crammed with information or with type too small to read. They're both fairly short; at just 4 pages each, you'll likely be left wanting a little more like I was. I'll be interested to see future writing from this author; we'll see what other topics she takes on in the future!
