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!

An old SST Records mail order form that was tucked into my copy of Black Flag’s The Process of Weeding Out. This is the reverse side, which will allow you to cry over the Raymond Pettibon ‘zines and posters that you could have purchased for almost nothin’ in 1984.

Cats Hate Cops, a photocopied booklet by the group New York Year Zero. I was really happy to meet a couple of these folks at the New York Art Book Fair. All of their booklets are sharp, but this one - which compiles old newspaper entries on cats attacking police officers - is particularly enjoyable. More scans to follow.
