This all sounds good.
I, too, would like the chapbook to resemble a graphic novel / comic book. Avery underrated art-form, I've always said. Gosh, I now live a couple of miles away from Alan Moore. Maybe I could find out his address and push one through his door!
Agree - theme, gives focus. But not 'female'. How about the picture-makers illustrating stuff by the wordists? Then call it something.
We print 100 copies - or CJ does. Each person gets a share. Then we make on-line PDF or similar, link to D5 pages.
Images at 300dpi (which is pro magazine quality), maybe.....?
"Agree - theme, gives focus. But not 'female'. How about the picture-makers illustrating stuff by the wordists? Then call it something." Okay, how about "Twins"..."Pairs"...."Duos"....something to do with teaming-up, connections, etc....? I'd like to contibute a short piece of text to the first one, if that's okay with everyone else - so feel free to team me up with someone I've never worked with before (if they'll have me) - randomly, arbitrarily, volunteer, don't mind....lol.....or we just do it solo if no-one's into the idea...
Taking about Alan Moore, Anthony - I was gonna mail a physical chapbook off to Warren Ellis - he's pretty open to self-made, lo-tech zines and stuff....this sort of approach is a great way to
randomly publicise/physically disseminate Discharge...
Yes, 300dpi as standard. Got to be for what CJ was saying.
Yes, Duos etc ... a duologue, lots of them. Conjoined.
I agree also - flirt with these people, send stuff off. Good way of using the chapbook to network.
"Duologues" hits a spot...has an alt.lit feel.....
Conjoined...Conjoinds....Conjoinder....Conjoindered....Conjoinder'd....Conjugation....(Bacterial conjugation is the transfer of genetic material between bacteria through direct cell-to-cell contact)...
I can produce to PDF from Word and/or any of the CS programs - though my photoshop is bizarrely truculent.
And, and this is just an idea I've been playing with, thinking would play well into our decentralized concept on discharge - perhaps we could have everyone who wants to do so
assemble his/her own discharge chapbook, culling either already-published or new, solicited works from discharge players (or both) ... just a thought ... a sort of revolving editorial door.
