"VILLAGE UNDER THREAT" VINTAGE ZINE FACSIMILE - 2020 BROWN PAPER EDITION
Since we only printed 88 (?!) copies of the first run of this facsimile, we have been inundated with requests for another edition. So here it is, and to mark it out from the first run, this one is printed entirely on BROWN PAPER!
Here's the blurb from the original listing -
"What is this "Village Under Threat"? What threat? Which village? What does it even mean?
This possible mini-zine from 1988 was "discovered" in an old suitcase in the loft of Alan's parents' house in Worthing, Sussex, England, where it had stayed hidden from view for exactly 30 years. The last remaining copy (of the original "limited" print run of ten) has been painstakingly resurrected in full, glorious, photocopier black and white, and is presented here with supplementary ephemera from the same era.
The zine is an A3 sheet, printed both sides, folded down to A5.
Showcasing a long lost Jamie Hewlett "missing link" image of Tank Girl, drawn before her first publication in Deadline Magazine in October 1988. The zine includes the text story "Yankee X-Ray Zulu Ball-Bag Teapot Parsnip".
This time the edition is limited to 88 (coz it was 1988, geddit?).
Included with the zine is an A5 art print of the long-lost Tank Girl image, a postcard of the equally long-lost "Lager Child" artwork, and a membership card for The Tank Girl Club.
Hand signed on the cut-out poster by Alan in black Bic Biro.
Please disregard the original "25p" price tag, which has been retained for authenticity."
Again, this time around, the brown paper edition will be limited to 88 copies.
Mailed in a board-backed envelope.
