KRAMERS ERGOT ZINE

From Blaise Larmee:

Hall Hassi made a minicomic version of Kramer’s Ergot 7, which she calls her ‘ke7 zine.’ The new size is only 5.5 x 8.5 inches.

It’s 96 xeroxed pages, really pushing the limit of the saddlestich binding but still holding together, and exactly like the original with some minor (I assume) accidents in printing. The only addition is the new ‘zine friendly’ title, ke7. Some pages transitioned better than others, here are some snaps.

  1. considering the elitist price of the original, I am SO happy to see this xerox version! now if someone can post full color CBR or PDF files of the original, we could all just relax and move on…

  2. I posted this because I thought it was an interesting “bootleg” experiment. I like how he admits that you can’t even read parts of it when it’s shrunk down. In the same way downloaded mp3s can’t replace vinyl sound, you’ll see there is no replacement for the experience of the full size Kramers 7. Our Portland Public Library has 8 copies available. See if your local library will order some!
