Purple Myrtle Squeegy - A PMS Perzine
It started in 2010 as a nonsense zine including art and articles that made sense solely to the writer. It later evolved into a diary-style perzine including stories and rants about holidays, travels, music, playing guitar, being a punk and a metalhead grrrl, activism, art, DIY events and projects, feminism and riot grrrl. It sometimes also includes collages and original drawings by the author, and a regular segment of the comics "Twigz".
The author explains the name of the zine as follows:
- Purple is her favorite color.
- Myrtle is her name (Hadass in Hebrew)
- Squeegy is what she is (not to be confused with Squeegee)
The issues are all hand-made cut-n-paste: written by hand or on a manual typewriter, laid out with scissors, glue, paper, construction paper, flyers and magazines, and pen or pencil drawings. The two first issues are half-page size, and the later ones are quarter-size.
The zine is available for trade. Contact Hadass by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
