One of the highlights of my quick trip to Los Angeles for the L.A. Art Book Fair was receiving this fantastic gift from Dale Johnson. Like me, Dale has been self-publishing since the late 1980s. We met online through a friend and he passed along a big pile of ‘zines to me for free—many of which I have scanned the covers of and posted. Last week in Los Angeles, we got to meet in person and he gifted me yet another pile of ‘zines—about 25 booklet-format publications, mostly from the late 1980s and early 90s. I look forward to scanning and sharing a bunch of these. Big thanks to Dale for his generosity and thoughtful dispersal of the things he no longer has space for!
