Les Carnets de Rastapopoulos #12 [October 2016]

16 pages, 8.5" x 7", free upon request, Rob, Les Carnets de Rastapopoulos, 2-7 Larch Street, Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA K1R 6W4

You will find out in the previous post that this zine really had me confused when I found it in my mailbox. It looked just like a regular DL size envelope, but addressed to me in blue ballpoint pen and covered in a bunch of wonderful postage stamps [which have become so rare in this day and age]. The sneaky [yet brilliant] thing I found out upon closer examination was that, in fact, it was the new issue of Rob's zine, folded and stapled so as to mimic an ordinary envelope. I'm sure - I know - I have seen this done before, but in this instance it impressed me so much, and made such an impact on me, that I decided today [while I was on the bus to work] that I am going to use this technique with my own zine, by which I mean my series of diary comix [Jan to Dec 2015] that I am still posting out to people. Some of them, the last page is blank, so it would be PERFECT.

Anyway, this is supposed to be a review of LCdR #12 so I'll get to that.

"This zine is about dreams," Rob writes at the beginning. But more specifically, travel dreams. Out of the many places Rob dreamed of visiting, only one remianed a constant. And I, your humble correspondent, is writing these words right this very minute from that exact place! "What place?" you shout, raising both fists like a lunatic. Australia, of course! This issue is all about Rob's long-planned visit to Australia! During which visit I had the pleasure to meet him when he dropped in to the Other Worlds Zine Fair in May last year!
