Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet No. 45
May: gone. June: gone. July: moving fast. Here are gods, snakes, death, and demons. On the lighter, crunchier side: carrots and apples. Twice a year this zine slips out into this world, less internationally than it used to. Maybe I just need to stand at airports and offer it as in-flight reading? Maybe I can persuade an airline to make it their in-flight magazine? How refreshing it would be to pull LCRW out of the seat pocket. Since LCRW only comes out twice a year, that leaves 10 months to be filled in with other zines. Airlines, ping me. We can make this work.
In the meantime, good things are here.
Made by Gavin J. Grant & Kelly Link.

Since December 2021 Gavin has been on the couch/working from home (not in the office or shop) with something along the lines of CFS or post-viral fatigue so everything Small Beer has & will be slowed down for the foreseeable future. Thanks to Laura, Kate, Beth, Franchie, Diya, & Jess at Book Moon for shipping LCRW (&c) and running the bookshop like a dream. We’re switching websites and point of sales systems at Book Moon so your orders and patience are much appreciated.
