Hunstanton: Wish You Were Here!


My latest zine is out. It's a psychogeography of the seaside town Hunstanton, in Norfolk. Here's the text from the prologue: 
I know this is a cliché, but this booklet is a kind of love letter to Hunstanton: one that is deeply influenced by both my childhood (being a progeny of King’s Lynn) and the nostalgia of my late teens and early twenties, when me and my peer group used to socialise here. This is way before Hunstanton became the ‘posh’ seaside town it now is. This text is both a celebration and lament. How can it be both, you may well ask. I left King’s Lynn, for London, in 1987 and I returned to Hunstanton in 2022 due to an unexpected change in my personal circumstances. This is the story of that journey: from the standpoint of a person whose perspective has changed. Moreover, also the space that is being explored has changed…

 


The A5 zine is in black and white with photos of Hunstanton and other related images. It also includes some academic analysis. The cover is made of yellow card and the zine is photocopied and professionally trimmed and stapled, retailing at £5.50 plus postage (UK is standard letter). The appendix includes a map, a collage and a poem.

Note: This is a Limited Edition run and consists only of a run of 25. At the time of writing (16/10/2023) there are 18 left. No more will be printed when these have all gone.

What I Love About . . . Cats

 


My new zine is out. It's about - yes, you can see by the title - all the things I love about cats (well not all, as there isn't a book big enough for that!).

The cover is made of coloured card (colour not specified) and the zine is hand trimmed and stapled. Please note: this is a hand produced zine and, by definition, consequently has its imperfections.
