Wanted: 25 people to contribute £5 each to help fund the printing of issue 1 of WE ARE ALIVE AGAIN, a new zine series.
My aim is to get 25 contributors by 3rd March to allow me to get the zine printed and ready to launch at Leeds Zine Fair on 16th March.
Each zine in the series will be a 32 page, hand made, full colour, limited edition run of 50 copies only. I aim to produce 3 issues this year.
In return for your support, each person will receive a hand -editioned copy of the zine, will be named and thanked within it, and will be offered a contributor only opportunity to buy Issue 2 at £2.50, half the retail cost.
The print costs of the zine is £125. I will sell the remaining 25 copies of Issue 1 at £5 each, which will pay for the print costs of Issue 2. Normally I photocopy my zines in black and white but I would really like to have this new series printed in good quality full colour.
WE ARE ALIVE AGAIN, the zine, is part of a wider ongoing art project which takes family photography as a starting point for artworks, conversations and collaborations. More about the project here and here

How to contribute:
Send £5 to my Paypal address Jeanmariemcewan@gmail.com. Please include your postal address, or email this to me. I will send you a confirmation email, giving you your edition number (1 – 25). I will then post you a copy of the zine when it comes back from the printers in mid March.
