The April 2017 bundle contains a dozen items. The largest is Ivan Snyder's 12-page (plus cover) Amateur Observer, set by hand and letterpress-printed. Other letterpress offerings include John Carvalho's A Martlet's Tales, Clarence Wolfshohl's My Ten Favorite T-Shirt Statements, and Visiting Firemen from Rich Hopkins and Mark McComas. Ken's Lightsome Journal made it to number 266, while Harry Spence published the 354th Independence Way. There is poetry, pictures, and lots of conversation in print.
Amateur journalism is a unique activity. Amateur journalists publish journals on paper & online & come from many perspectives: from deluxe letterpress printed journals, to Xeroxed newsletters, to artistically designed cards and ephemera. We embrace the spirit of being amateurs – loving what we do for pure joy and not financial gain – while creating top quality journals, zines, and homemade publications.
