Ker-Bloom! Volume III is a bound set of twenty Ker-Bloom! zines, numbers 43-63. Ker-Bloom! is a regularly issued, bi-monthly zine, which first came out over eight years ago. Each issue contains a personal essay that relays an event or situation, from the epic to the banal and everything in between, while simultaneously exploring an underlying socio-political theme. Topics over the past eight years include: bicycles, love lost, substitute teaching, zine conferences, anarchism, and domestic violence. Each issue is set letter by letter in lead type and printed on a Vandercook flat-bed printing press. Due to the labor-intensiveness of the endeavor, each issue is only eight quarter-size pages long. But what Ker-Bloom! lacks in size it more than makes up for in passion!

20 letterpress zines. Letterpress printing on cover boards. 5.75″ x 4.5″ x 1.75.” Edition of 40. 2010.
