Financially Hard Times April #12

Happy Birthday

So after 12 months of working on The Financially Hard Times, I have decided to call it a day. Having produced 12 issues over the past year, I am so chuffed with how far the zine has come on, but now want to work on other works and projects.

From being left like escorts flyers around Dalston, to eventually being stocked in shops around the UK, I feel the last year has been a huge success considering it has all been made within my bedroom.

I could not have done it with out certain people/events/shops. 
So (in no order whatsoever) Thank You Alex Zamora / Andrew Lester / Camden Zine Fair / Beth Siveyer / Good Press Gallery / Jon Horner / No Guts No Glory / Caribou Caravan / Cath Elms / Dalston Stationers / Nathan Stubbs / Jimi Gherkin / Igor Thermenon / Rebecca Lanyon / Sheffield Zine Fair / Vicki Psaris / Bookmarks Bookshop / Salford Zine Library / Jean McEwan / Whirly Gig Collectives / Jaap Biemans @CoverJunkie / Anyone who reviewed a copy and especially anyone who bought a copy or two.  

I have enjoyed making the zine and loved having the chance to meet others who are excited and enthusiastic about their work.
