Four February Gems

Four February Gems

The February AAPA bundle was small, but contained four gems:

Steve Ingram ponders the difference between driving in urban and rural environments, tiny ads posted in public places, and the contemplation of life on a snowy bench, all in the first issue of Mini Zine, an 8-pager printed on a cleverly folded letter-sized sheet . Let's hope there are many more issues!

In Edgertons' Way, John Edgerton purblishes a couple of his poems.The first is about sharing thoughts in Ink  Cahoots, AAPA's cooperative annual publication. His second poem ponders pictures and memories.

Another poet, Clarence Wolfshohl in El Grito del Lobo Slimside #27, imagines how ancient gods would make matches in the digital age.

In honor of Black History Month, Danny Kelly creates a larger than usual letterpress project to describe several African American Printers.
