Minutiae No 2.

A special thanks to Aijung Kim who sent us her awesome zine called Minutiae.  This zine comes with an adorable periwinkle cover and wonderful illustrations throughout.  The mini stories are approximately 1-2 pages in length, handwritten, and vary from sad (the squirrel dying on the side of the road) to uplifting (the hummingbird). Minutiae is filled with wonderful little treasures from beginning to end.  If you love gardens, nature, and wonder sometimes what path the universe is leading you to, you'll love this little zine.  Thank you Aijung!  Take a look at her wonderful etsy store here

My favorite page in the zine is about perfectionism.  I know that all too well.

Introducing Eric Nelson

Meet the newest author to be published by Knickerbocker Circus.  His name is Eric Nelson and he is the creator of Silk Cities.  From the first time I read Silk Cities I was taken with how honest and real the stories were and how they really got the essence of each person being written about.  We are very happy to have him aboard and look forward to the release of his book.  Release TBA soon.

About the Author: 
 

Eric Nelson, 25, was born and raised in a blue-collar suburb of northern New Jersey, the son of a nurse and machinist. In his teenage years, he found solace in the punk rock subculture and became involved in radical politics, the art of zine making, and a strong local music scene that often extended to New York City. He began writing fiction while an undergraduate at Ramapo College of New Jersey, a public college tucked away in the Ramapo Mountains. Upon graduating college, he moved to Boston in search of a job in non-profit fundraising and began working for a domestic violence non-profit organization. After a short period of time spent there, he moved to Brooklyn, where he began to seriously write short fiction and continue to work for non-profits. In May of 2009, he published his first zine in years as a series of short stories known as “The Silk City Series.”

       He also became involved in the art scenes of the Lower East Side and Williamsburg, Brooklyn as a volunteer zine librarian at the art/activist space ABC No Rio, as well as an arts administrator at the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, a non-profit gallery. What began as a way to grieve over the death of a parent turned into something bigger.

      Individual stories have been distributed to passers-by at coffee houses, and art spaces, such as the 3rd Ward Artist Co-op in Brooklyn; and have also been sold at various festivals, through the website etsy.com and in bookstores such as Bluestockings Radical Bookstore and Wooden Shoe Books in Philadelphia. In addition to The Silk City Series, he has written numerous essays and articles published in several magazines including upcoming issues of “Constellation” as well as the self-published “Cup and Saucer Chronicles” zine, which was favorably reviewed in the October 2009 issue of Maximum Rocknroll magazine.
