Basic Paper Airplane
Basic Paper Airplane is a zine by Joshua James Amberson. Started in July, 2005 in Olympia, Washington it is now released out of Portland, Oregon. As of August, 2018, twelve issues have come out, including collaborative split issues with Alexis Wolf's Ilse Content and Craven Rock's Eaves of Ass zine.
While perhaps categorically a perzine, issues are commonly a wide array of essays, interviews, research pieces, quotes, and vignettes. Common themes are family, odd Americana, print media, history, and childhood.
In a review of issue #3, the blog We Love You So said, "His zines have covered everything from genealogy to film to simplicity to cops to the media to the ghosts of Snohomish County to Kindles to the Postal System (deep breath)…and beyond. It’s amazing. It’s inspiring."
