Thank you [Jul. 6th, 2013|11:49 am]
Thanks all who have submitted your entries to the 2nd volume for Dear You: Letters to Lost Friends.  I will be spending the next couple of months laying the pages out, editing, and of course printing and assembling the final zine.  It may take quite a while, so do be patient!  If there are any updates along the way, they will be posted here.

Wishing you well
Janell

It's ready! [Jan. 3rd, 2012|12:35 pm]
Apologies for the lack of updates. Been occupied of late. I had some time the past week to get the zine and covers printed, sorted, as well as bound with twine and made 40 copies of Dear You: Letters to Lost Friends.


If you'd like to purchase a copy, do head over to www.janellh.com. They're going for USD5 (postage already included) and the $ used to cover the printing, stamps, and other misc like envelopes, paper and string. Please keep in mind also that I'm not seeking to make money off the work of others! : ) If you have no Etsy account, simply paypal USD4 to wtpp [at] hotmail [dot] com and leave a msg saying it's for the Dear You zine. If the cost is seem as steep, it is due to the postage, the zine weighs 50 grams.

Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to the zine and I really enjoyed reading your letters. I didn't think it was possible to complete the zine while working full-time but with the help and support of many people, you included, it got made!

The gist:
24 letters
72 pages
1/4 sized
Full-color cover on 225gsm matte card
Bound with string/twine

If you'd like to purchase the other compilation zine I did last year The Perfect Day, I also made more copies of that.

Thank you everyone for making this project a success! And last but not least, Happy New Year!

Best,
J

Updates [Jan. 1st, 2012|01:39 am]
Letters have been coming in a little slowly though the deadline is approaching - 10 days - but I'm confident more will come in soon. Feel free to pass on the project link to friends of yours who you think might be interested in this project. It is possible that all entries will later be accessible online (looking into it) but if you'd like to purchase a hard copy you'd then be able to do so through my shop.

Thank you to all who have generously contributed your letters and here's hoping to more letters to share.

Best,
Janell
