On Easy Street: No. 1

On Easy Street, No. 1.

On Easy Street, No. 1.

THIS IS A MINI-ZINE, MADE OF ONE SHEET OF 8 1/2″ X 11″ PAPER, FOLDED TO MAKE 8 PAGES.

 

What is there to confess that’s worthwhile or useful? What has happened to us has happened to everyone or only to us; if to everyone, then it’s no novelty, and if only to us, then it won’t be understood.”

–Fernando Pessoa

Each mini-zine in the Easy Street series is dedicated to Fernando Pessoa. I am using zines as a way of generating ideas for my second novel, but they have become important to me as finished pieces of art in their own right. They are also a helpful way to organize my thoughts.  Included in this zine:

  1. A manifesto
  2. Epigraphs: quotes by Barbey d’Aurevilly and Jean Dubuffet
  3. Two journal entries
  4. A letter
