One of the major impetuses (impeti?) for starting up Kaleidotrope was seeing some of the really great zines that were already out there. For me in particular, these included publications like Flytrap and Talebones and Electric Velocipede. But the biggest influence and inspriation of all, I think, was the consistently weird and wonderful Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet
It's been brought to my attention that LCRW is celebrating its ten-year anniversary. That's a little mind-boggling, but the success they've enjoyed couldn't have happened to a better publication. Check out this new issue, if you haven't already, or send them a little love.
I can only hope that Kaleidotrope survives a quarter of that long.
