Peach Melba #8
PO Box 74
I recently attended the Brighton Zine Fest, and one of the really rad things I saw there was a little girl (12? I am terrible at ages) who made her own zines and came to my artist trading card workshop (though I just like anyone that comes to my workshops really).
Anyway, her zine, Peach Melba, is super cute. It’s a single, double-sided piece of paper that is cunningly cut and folded to create lots of pages of different sizes. On them are random lists and writings: words she might use in a story about pirates, questions for British Prime Minister Gordon Brown (“Can I assume you have read Animal Farm?”), the fact that she likes Philip Pullman novels (aaaah, my friend just met him and I am so jealous), countries that have laws about blasphemy, uses for string, things that are green.
I will stop myself before I list everything in the zine, but yeah it’s super cute, and way more interesting than some zines I've gotten from adults! I can’t wait to read the other issues I have.
