The 1955 equivalent of online dating: “Women would approach a machine that looked a bit like an old-school automat. The machine had photos of different men, each with a short description. She would put her coins in a slot and out would pop a more detailed note, describing just what kind of guy her potential suitor was. The woman would then take her letter to a love-agent who was able to make an introduction.”

“ At your aunt and uncle’s house the kitchen was always filled with the smells of the massive dinner to come. Aunts and cousins wove this way and that in the small space, opening oven doors and turning on burners. Meanwhile, the sounds of a sports game would be blaring from the television in the living room where the uncles all sat as if they were parts of the couches themselves. ”

I just discovered that when I sent an issue of Peep to Broken Pencil back in 2011, though it seemed like nothing happened, the magazine did in fact write a review of it. Here it is!

Now available!  Sincerely Analog’s latest release, Home State:  Life in Nebraska.  

This is a book of short vignettes based on the author’s experiences growing up in the state of Nebraska.  Said writings are provided in an attempt to shed some light on a state about which little is often known except for a few vague generalities.  

From the introduction:

"I am from a fly-over state, a great plains state, one of those arbitrary shapes that exist in the middle of this country, someplace between this and that.  Such a point of origin is not quite expected.  When I tell someone that I am from Nebraska, they often say, ‘Oh,’ and pause to think.  ’Nebraska.  Now where is that again?’ they might eventually ask."

-Delphine Bedient

This book is printed in small batch editions.  Each copy measures 4.25” x 5.5” and is hand-bound, dated and numbered.  

It is currently available on etsy and will be available in stores listed on the stockists page after it debuts at the Brooklyn Zine Fest on Saturday, April 26th.
