The Book (Issues 1 - 37)

Selected pages from issues 1 to 37 are anthologized in this Clouds published book. Co-edited by Gwynneth Porter, co-designed by Warren Olds. 304 pages. Retails for $30 but currently out of print.
Introduces the overall narrative arc of eight years of fanzine production. Gloriously messy at first, with the zine changing its spots at least three times. Once it settles into the autobiographical and everyday it reads like a diary of protracted adolescence, at pains with the compromises of growing up: Post graduate study, children, mortgage, social death, ennui... but still shot through with self deprecating humour. Text, photographs, comics, and drawings. Features many guest contributors including Bek Coogan and Tammy Rose Stretton. Mid 2011.
