Stephanie wrote me a very friendly letter with a request for a zine review. I have a tremendous appreciation for people who reach out!

While not breaking any new ground in the perzine genre, (Building) Letters In the Attic recalls a hellish flight from Portland via Phoenix to Tulsa in high summer. Steph’s airplane breaks down and misery ensues. I was breaking a sweat in the middle of winter just reading this. This zine reminds me why I don’t travel by air. The last few pages are devoted to some interesting ephemera, particularly a bicycle postcard from 1893.
