Natalie Word is my latest magazine I'm publishing. Yes, that's right, I NEVER learn. However I'm publshing Natalie Word on the Lulu publishing site, which is print on demand, so it's not like it's costing me a ton of dough, basically I just have to pay for the ones I send out to my comp list.
The first issue was a celebration of the 40th anniversary of 1969. I wrote about such 1969 happenings as: Woodstock, Altamont, the first man on the moon, Ted Kennedy drunkenly driving into a pond and leaving a girl for dead and I made a cheeseburger. I bought a lot of vintage magazines and items from ebay and they're all used for art within the articles. I also scanned in old ads from 1969 magazines I bought and scattered them throughout. You can buy the print issue or you can download a pdf of the inside of the magazine for a buck. Yes, one stinking dollar and you can get a high quality pdf, easily read and opened on your computer. Interested? Well, just go here and download away, Natalie Word, issue number one.
For the second issue I've created the world's first "mashup magazine." Basically what I've done is taken pages and ads from magazines, scanned them in Photoshop and then stripped the type out and wrote my own captions and stories. The New York Observer wrote a story about this issue and you can find that on the News page. You can download Natalie Word number 2 for just 99 cents! Just click here.
