OYB 10---Print Window to Modern Folkways
September 02, 2010
[$6 postpaid.] This biggest-ever issue of OYB is a great way to get a full-figured view of the OYB scene! (I thought I was out of stock, but I just found a couple dozen. What fun! First come, first served...)
The OYB "catazeen" has to be the only magazine of authentic, informal, do-it-yourself, indy adventure and outdoor culture. It also gives descriptions for all the books, mags, videos, music, and drygoods I'm selling. It's a combo magazine/catalog, which is why I call it a "catazeen."
I've written most of the articles but there are several stand-outs by other writers. But I produced it all. (Whups, not the cover design! Hats off to my designer friend Owen Neils for a gorgeous cover!) It has to be the only one-man show covering a general range of authentic culture.
It's my first full-color cover. And the biggest issue at 82 pages.
Cover price is $3 + $3 postage = $6. (For Non-US postage, see below.)
So if you want a copy of the new #10, click the PayPal "Buy Now" button to the left under the cover image.
You know, I also have an Anthology edition of OYB 1-8 available for $20 (200+ pages!). Or you can order back issues separately. And #9 is still available, too. Click on the "Mag Subscribe" link in the menubar for more info.
I have pretty good distro, so #10 was also available at quite a few newstands nationwide.
If you want to subscribe to OYB, just click the "Add to Cart" button below this paragraph. (Don't confuse it with the #10 "Buy Now" button under the cover image!) I'm only offering a one-issue sub for now. It's $5 and you'll be on the list to get #11. I'll do a new issue when I launch my next major book ("The Folding Bike!") in Spring 2007. Click here:

|The first bulk mailing went out today, for all pre-pub orders and most longtime subscribers. The lady will process them in a couple days, then it's about a week for bulk-mail to really go thru and start showing up. Fingers crossed!|
I have another big bulk mailing that I'll ship when we get back from a weeklong art fair booth up north at Suttons Bay. I only had 500 copies that were trimmed and ready to mail today. The printer will have the remaining thousands ready when we get back. Whew!

|FYI, the second bulk mailing went out Aug 18 or so. My mail lady gets em out in a day or two after I drop them off. So the first went out definitely the first week of Aug. Sadly, bulk mail does sometimes take several weeks. |
