Print for a Pound


Issues One and Four are both classics. The first has an interview with Judith Levine and my Invitation to Escapology essay that started the whole thing off. The latter has a smashing article by Reggie C. King about Sartre’s and Flaubert’s tendencies to stay in bed for long stretches.

Anyway, I printed too many for our last zine fair and there are now some leftover copies haunting our apartment, making a mockery of our minimalist living space, so I’d like very much to give them away to you for a quid apiece. Get ’em while they’re hot! And cheap!

To buy them, simply visit the shop today and click the “Buy for £1” button you’ll see there.

Not a bad way to introduce a friend to New Escapologist.

All dough raised will go into the kitty to print Issue 13.

UPDATE: The discounted copies of Issue One are now sold out. Thanks for your support! Issue Four is still available for a quid though: get them while they last.

UPDATE 2: That’s the surplus stock all sold out. Thank you very much, everyone.
