Physical Description

"Each issue of 28 Pages is hole-punched and bound with various types of twine, keeping true to its title. Issue #9 (The Dental Issue) was bound with dental floss. 28 Pages is a personal zine dedicated to the experiences and imagination of Christoph, a stay-at-home father, writer and artist. He writes stories about his day-to-day life, his son, Herbie, his wife, Lisa, and rural life. He also includes several letters (and responses) to companies that have either disappointed or delighted him. The zine often includes hand-colored images and linoleum prints. 28 Pages was selected as the winner of the "General Excellence: Zines" category in the 2006 Utne Independent Press Awards by the editors of Utne Reader." -- ZineWiki "A carefully crafted and humorous hand done personal zine by a father, philosopher, and Buddhist. This is probably the most exciting issue ever. It's blown up to a larger format with the "trim" piece from the printing, being a separate zine telling stories from his partner's work day, and an Amish man falling dead in the checkout line at Kroger. The primary document here talks about pissing out a fire they had, the joys and intricacies of their new hybrid car, the similarity of the Cleveland police emblem to a pig, a bit about the difference between love and marriage, and Herbie's (their son) love for trains." -- Microcosm Publishing This zine is a classic.
