This is my third zine, created March of 2011, reissued October of 2014.
100% handmade, 4.25"x5.5", black+white, forty-eight pages, stapled.

This is a collection of things that I have found on the ground, on telephone poles, on college bulletin boards, in the road, and beyond since I first started picking up trash back in 2007. Until now, it has all been sitting in a memory box, waiting for a purpose. These things range from family portraits to letters from prison and everything in between. Most of them were found within my area code, mostly throughout Schenectady and Albany, NY.

I know the concept of a book of 'found' items has been done before, but I think it's nifty enough to be done again and again since one person's collection will never be the same as someone else's! You'd be surprised at what people throw in trash cans and on the ground.

I originally made this last-minute just to have one more item at a zine festival Buffalo and am not particularly stoked on it, but people seem into it, so I decided to keep selling it. I stopped for a year or so, but it's not back by popular demand, revamped to better match my perzines' aesthetic and with new found things included.
