I love zines with envies and pockets full of goodies, color
copies or originals for collage art, and other ephemera inserts

art projects and selected themes (Altered Books, Torso art,
Tins, Vials, Francophile, and Vintage themes.) Subscribers
often request an opportunity to contribute articles or goodies
for this quarterly zine - so please let me know if you would
like to be in one of the upcoming issues. Please email me
at "The Gleaner@aol.com"
(also my PayPal name) for ordering info.
