izm reading list part 1 of 2

Here’s my reading list so far, mid month. About half of these are rereads because even though I have a HUGE to read pile I needed to have mostly minis since I had to take them to work. Wallet size is the right size for a tour guide. I’ll have more fun to share in a few days with […]


I’ve noticed that I’m down to a single issue of many older titles. I’m also tired of offering the same stock at so many events, especially with just 1 or 2 copies of a title. Even though they’re older they’re still really great and I want to get them in the hands of readers. This […]

November Stock

I’ve finally updated the stock since last time. After Chicago ZF, getting married, having an extended honeymoon road trip, moving, Milwaukee ZF and Madison ZF (Dane County Print Explosion) I’ve been extremely busy and the stock has changed a good amount. I’ve added a number of my own titles as well as my husband’s. Check […]

31 Postcards

That was printed before zine fest last week but the project is still finishing up. I’m currently working on #7, which is the cassette piece […]


I know it’s been a bit since I posted but I have some massive things coming. The Milwaukee and Chicago Zine Fests were great and I got the chance to hang out with some amazing people. I’ve sold out of a few things that were low, reprinted a bit, and picked up some new titles […]

Our Bodies, Our Bikes

Update: This was included in Taking the Lane Vol. 5. I began to distribute this title at the 2012 CZF but sold out that day. I am hoping to restock it before the MKEZF. This version is a touch longer than the final published draft.   This is a piece that will hopefully be included […]


Thanks for checking this out. I am in the process of changing info over from my old site so this is very much in progress. Check back for the updated catalog. Briefly, I am a zine maker and distributor. I’ve run Bottles on the Sill Lending Library and Distro since 2003 (though the library is […]
