    So, I'm off the wagon and trying to make a print fanzine again.

    Here's the deal: We will make a magazine. It should have at least 24 pages. You get to reserve pages in the magazine; these pages belong to you, and you can do whatever you want to do with them. Five pages have already been reserved. Hurry while there is still space!

    (Imagonem's superior gutenbergological technology prefers to use black on white; colours and grayscales are for the weak minded and the troglodytes! But if you need colour on your pages, tell us, and we shall see what may be done.)

    Imagonem usually covers gaming of the indie/artish/DIY variety, with a bit of comics and other cool stuff thrown in. But we're letting you reserve your pages for whatever, so feel free to do something completely different. We intend to recklessly mix english and norwegian content.

    The call for articles goes something like this:

    Some things can only be said on paper. Some stuff you have to touch, tear out, cut up, make copies of, and possibly chew on, if you are that sort. Some stuff must be carried around a bit, sat down with, browsed, and thought about. Some things you have to point out to other people, read together and talk about.

    You have something you need to say, and it can only be said on mashed-up, dead trees. Imagonem will be happy to help you with this. One day, very soon, when we have enough pages, we will print Imagonem # 38. Tell us how many pages you need in the comments here, or, if you're shy, send it to gkraag@gmail.com. We imagine a magazine in A5 format - that's regular A4 office issue pages, folded. What you do with your pages are, of course, up to you. Take a look at our archive if you need some inspiration.

    If you also want to determine how the magazine should look, who should have it, and other editorish things, we promise to come back with a date for an editorial meeting.

    Oh; and - the print run is probably going to be rather small. So I'm thinking of printing the front page without a logo, and adding the logo with a rubber stamp. Anyone have any experience/tips for doing this?

    I'll take 4, if that's awesome enough for you. I'd probably use them for a comic. Is there a deadline yet?

    Cool! Duly noted.

    We'll hold off on deadlines until we have enough pages to fill a magazine, but a couple of people have proposed their own dates, mostly december/january.

    Halfway there! The consensus seems to be on march 15th as a deadline.

    I'll take a page or two. I'd be more specific but I don't know what I'm doing yet :P

    Do you still have a page or two to spare? I would love to try my hand at this.

    Cool! You have the right email; will print name and website - include any other info you want to go with it. If you want to see the result on paper, send a postal address too.

    Hey Nygaard - any room left?

    I've written something which is a poem that's a set of instructions but also an toolkit for philosophical interaction with all things paper.

    That sounds like something that needs to see print.

    At this point, I have no idea whether there will be spare space or not, so how about this: if you send it to me, I'll do what I can, and if it can't be done, you're guaranteed space in the next issue.

    Yay! Done! And appears to be well received, so far :)

    Will start the mailings after bringing it to next weekend's annual game organizer meetup-thingy.

    That looks lurvely.

    Sorry I've been absent for while Nygaard - it's been a strange and busy old time of late.

    I'll get that instructable-poem to you asap.

    Congrats on a thing of beauty.

    Cool!

    I have a couple of thigs for the next issue coming already; probably won't be able to get it out until summer, though. I have a dream of trying out newspaperclub, but that will require a bit of real, non-moochery-based funding. Will post here as soon as the pdf version is online.

    [Online!]

    This is the raw file used for printing; I'd insert the actual cover as shown on the photo, but can't get at a decent pdf editor at the moment. Contributer's issues are in the post.

    I also liked scribd so much I added the entire archive, all the way back to '94 or something. Most of it is in Norwegian, but I guess some of the pictures look pretty; I'm particularily enamoured with the front page of #1 :)

    Next issue will probably go out in june at the earliest. Want a page? You know the routine.
