Shards of Glass in Your Eye! #1-10 by Kari Tervo


Cover from Atomic Books

From a note accompanying my order, "Additionally, you'll notice that on the cover of one of the copies of #5, there is glued-on bacon. This means that copy is a first edition. The bacon fell off after the cover had already been proofed and it was printed without it, so I had to glue it on every cover. In the second print run, I saved my bacon." In case you were concerned, as I was, she's not talking about real bacon. Can you imagine?

What can I do with my life in a way that is both meaningful and honors the people I survived? Do I have any right to complain? To excavate this history? Isn't surviving it enough? And how will doing so affect my relationships with family? Do I owe it to myself? Do I owe it to anyone else?"

A zine that someone sold us that they later decided they didn't want in our catalog that I'm still sticking in our archives with a suppressed record because it's an important zine
