After working on Proximity magazine, it’s especially important to me to support local & smaller publications because I know the extra amount of effort it takes to them pull off, particularly financially. And now there’s this week’s news that ID is folding, on top of all our other countess magazine friends that have folded in the last year or two. With each subsequent closing announcement, of course I cling further to my beloved small-time zines & mags. That’s why I got so excited when I heard about At Your Leisure which will be a series of 4 issues and sounds like it’s pretty much the same concept as a blog, but in that delectable print form… “it’s page after page of ideas, images, concepts, & colors. An homage to those that inspire and a desire to do the same. A visual train of thought. A celebration of individuals that live what they love…”
Are you drooling yet? Get yours here for 10 bones. Oh, did I mention it’s an edition of 250? So go NOW.
And in case you need some more publication love in your life, here are some of my most favorites:
Proximity, Pyramid Power, Featherproof books, Uppercase, Lumpen, New Work, Lines & Shapes, Pie Paper, Jettison, Glasses Glasses, Anorak, and Esopus. And better still, go to Quimby’s, Golden Age, or Printed Matter and find your own new ones.
Thanks for the great list of publications. I haven’t heard of some of these and I’m excited to check them out.
I just found out about ID today. Really bummed about that one.
thanks for the heads up and great list… i’m passing it on (via my blog)…. i’m with you, support the local and the small.
