Laughter and the sound of teacups, 22 September 2002

Laughter and the Sound of Teacups was a personal zine written and published by Vanessa Berry, a writer based in Sydney, Australia, in 67 issues between 1997 and 2002.

The author describes this zine on her website as follows:

"I would write about my thoughts and actions every 23rd of the month in a detailed, eidetic style. I tried to explain my days exactly how they occurred, including all the important tiny things that make up everyday life. The events on the 23rd were random, I rarely premeditated them, therefore days could be fairly sedentary, or involve complicated excursions, celebrations and weird coincidences. Times of tea drinking and craft, times of mania and excessive boozing, and everything in between."

Further information about the creation of this zine can be found in, Vanessa Berry, 'A journey into the deepest, darkest detail', in Heat 11, New Series 2006 (Artarmon, NSW: Giramondo Publishing Company, 2006).
