L A S T C O P Y ===

No change in content from the 1st 2 prints, only difference is the salmon colour on the cover.

Dear You: Letters to Lost Friends is a compilation zine project containing letters to people who for various reasons, are not in our lives anymore.

It is inevitable that people who enter our lives, leave eventually. Dealing with people leaving is not easy, but it is the ways some of them leave that just make it a lot more difficult to handle. The sudden non-talking, the disinterest, the distance, death...

This could be due to many reasons, major disagreements, moving away physically or emotionally, breakups, differences, changes in life circumstances, deaths and etc.

This zine contains 24 such letters.

The gist:
1/4 sized
72 pages
full-color cover on 300gsm nevia artcard
bound with string/twine
rounded corners!

REVIEW by Kathy Tran: http://comeintoland.com/2012/01/16/zine-review-dear-you-letters-to-lost-friends/

"It seems like Dear You achieves in representing a vast variety of voices: a friend, a lover, an activist, a daughter, and more. Despite the variety of voices, I am almost always able to identify myself with each letter."

AUDIO REVIEW BY DJ Frederick of One Minute Zine Reviews (Transcribed)

"We've all left people behind in this world, or been left behind, intentionally or simply through a change in circumstances in life. Dear You: Letters to Lost Friends is a compilation zine edited by Janell Hoong. Dear You is packed with dozens of letters written to friends, lovers, family members, some living, some departed. Reading the zine in small doses is probably recommended. There is longing and heartache bleeding from each page. Dear You is a paper monument to those we have somehow lost along our way."
