February 2013: Artnoose’s Ker-Bloom! #97


Artnoose started letterpress printing Ker-bloom! in the summer of 1996 and has been doing so every other month ever since. She writes about her life, and as such, her zine has become a history in installments. In 2007 she relocated operations from Oakland CA to Pittsburgh PA in search of less expensive living. She currently lives at the Cyberpunk Apocalypse Writers’ Collective, hosting literary events and a monthly visiting writer program. While tending to her infant son Bernard she’s up to various other things like going to punk shows, baking vegan cupcakes, singing live band karaoke, writing letters to political prisoners, and reading science fiction books.

Ker-bloom! is available at etsy.com/shop/artnoose as well as the following bookstores: City Lights, Needles & Pens, Powell’s, Quimby’s, Left Bank, Firestorm, Internationalist Books, and Bluestockings. Individuals and institutions interested in subscriptions or collections of back issues can inquire at artnoose@yahoo.com.
