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.

Described as "a conversational/confessional/collaborative zine by two friends" NICKNAME is by Hurley Winkler and Aysha Miskin; it's a 5x7 zine with clear layout and crisp images; it's a combination of cut & paste & xerox and original drawings, notes written on guest checks (both of these folks have exquisite handwriting, btw), and one really weird drawing of sea waves with the c-word written all over them. Both issues are a weird mishmash of images and words, but they're neat to look at. I'm interested to see how they develop; they don't read like a conversation, but who knows where they'll go in further issues. They're worth checking out, and I'm not sorry that I read them; they aren't linear storytelling but the composition is compelling -- if you're into cut & paste, these are worth your time. (Email and see if they're up for a trade!)
