title: It’s Not You. I Just Need Space. (interplanetary letters of love and rejection)
creator: Chella Quint
If you’re a space and planetary enthusiast, you’ll appreciate this zine by Chella Quint. It’s punny in all the right ways and cleverly written. In it are letters of love and rejection to and from planets, galaxies, and other interstellar entities. With its blue background and retro typeface, I almost felt like every letter was out floating in space on its way to its addressed planetary recipient.
And if you indeed are a space enthusiast, you’ll find the letters particularly charming as they all hint at relevant news stories and events—from Pluto’s demotion to Global Warming.
It was a quick and light read, and after I had finished it, I wished there had been more. Web search the zine for some page samples.
