Advertise your project in OBSOLETE! #8
In May, we will be putting out the 8th issue of OBSOLETE! Magazine, and we hope you will consider supporting this free, nationally distributed Arts and DIY tabloid by running an ad for your business, book, band, website, podcast- if you are independent and creative, we want to promote your project in the pages of OBSOLETE!
Issue #7 of OBSOLETE! is reaching a record number of readers, with 3000 copies distributed across the US and Canada through our Guerilla Distribution Network. Volunteers deliver free copies to local independently owned bookstores, record shops, coffeehouses, vintage stores, art galleries and nightclubs. We have gotten fan mail from across the planet, including a reader in Florida who picked up copies in Chicago, and even a reader from Serbia who picked up a copy in San Francisco! OBSOLETE! brings local, independent scenes together and helps keep printed media alive.
The theme of OBSOLETE! #8 is “Obsolete Media: It’s Alive!”. We will be featuring an essay by a UK artist who makes his art with a 1984 Timex-Sinclair home computer, an article on “Cassette Culture”, original fiction by the great Mick Farren, an excerpt from Christian Schoon’s upcoming novel “Zenn Scarlet”, illustrations by Frank Gresham and much more.
