36 Dollars Magazine.

36 Dollars Magazine
A beautiful magazine made entirely from found paper, hand stitched, bound and cut.

Found art.

Found art in a tiny, easy-to-carry package.

Before found art is found, it’s trash.

Basically, This is a pocket-sized magazine made of trash.

I bought one!

Despite the name, these things went for a mere $6, including shipping. So why not? I can afford six bucks.

To be honest, I’d forgotten I ordered this, it’s been sitting on my desk in a brown wrapper with strange writing on it for months. I finally remembered what it was, and opened it up to take a look.

And you know what? I actually kind-of like it.

Here it is.

Here it is. It’s a 4¼x3¼ inch little booklet. It really is made of random bits of scrap paper.

You know what? I think this is delightful.

I love the randomness of this. I feel like I’m some kind of future-archeologist trying to understand a civilization through its trash.

I would honestly buy one of these every month if they were available.

Failure.

So, if this project succeded, and I liked it, why am I calling it a KickFailure?

Well, for one thing, it’s funny to resell trash.

But more importantly … he doesn’t seem to have actually sent everybody their magazine!

Not only did he not send out all the magazines, but he’s disappeared!

He’s taken all these people’s money and doesn’t even have the guts to tell them what went wrong!

At least he warned us.
