my first zine, Ladybug #1 is now ready & available!!

(the photo doesn't look so great, it's a little grainy, sorry!)

i have a "Shipping Log" on my We Make Zines page, to keep track of when & who i send Ladybug #1. if you bought a copy or we arranged a trade, check this post...

my first zine ever, for the 24 Hour Zine Thing of 2010. check for details on this event/project.

i'm still trying to write a good description for my zine haha. 
done in the old cut n' paste style, it's your typical perzine, with short stories about my childhood, typewriters, finding a gray hair, and insects, among other tidbits. nothing too deep or intimate though, because i wanted to make a “positive” zine, something that would be pleasant to read, kinda like “light reading”.

Ladybug #1 is quarter-sized (A6) and 32 pages, hand-sewn with sewing thread. while the inside is all black & white, each cover is hand-colored with crayons, using varied colors. after each copy is assembled, i put a few embellishments on the back-cover, so every copy is always different!

available for direct online purchase coming soon!!!
in the meantime leave a comment or email me for info to buy a copy - postage will vary depending on your country. you can use a Currency Converter website like to figure out how much it will cost in your country's currency.

i accept PayPal; i'll send you an invoice with the total cost. ...if you don't have PayPal but still want to get hold of a copy, maybe we can work something out. occasionally i'll accept cash in foreign currency: $2 USD/CAD/AUD, or £1,30 GBP plus postage. oh, and Euros, of course!

if you have any questions feel free to message me at zineproject2009 [at] gmail [dot] com

i'm up for *SELECTED TRADES ONLY*, specially if you make zines too - i'm mostly into perzines, comics, literary zines; i'm not so much into poetry, political or music zines, sorry! i'm also up for trades for other zines made for this year's 24-Hour Zine Thing!

thanks for reading :)
