I’m really excited for the second issue of Plumbago, my zine project. If you’ll remember, the first issue came out late last year. It was a bit rushed, since I was trying to produce an issue in time for a Zine Fest at the Facebook Analog Lab.
Turns out, I made far too few copies, and because it was assembled entirely using the photocopier, several features in it were pretty heavily distorted.
This time around, I wanted to produce a higher-quality issue, to see how that felt.
Well, it feels pretty great! Weighing in at 36 pages full of photos, comics, illustrations, and written features, I present Issue #2!
This time, I need to spend a bit more money on producing the issue, so I opened it up for pre-orders to fund the initial print run. Please help out by placing a pre-order!
Just a few features you’ll find in this issue:
- “What I’ve Learned from Field Notes”: A piece by urban sketcher Tina Koyama
- “Rabbinic Musings in Graphite”: about how pencils aid in the intense study environs of rabbi school by Mordechai Lightstone
- “How to Keep Score at a Baseball Game Using a Pencil”: A piece by Gregory Dresser
- “Are You Too Obsessed with Stationery?:” A quiz to help you measure your sickness
- A comic by the Mad Penciler
- An editorial by Dr. J. Frank, encouraging you to lovingly destroy your pencils
- And lots, lots more.
This issue will be $10 each, but during the pre-order period, it’s $8. Head over to the Plumbago page on Erasable.us to order a copy now!
