FLYPAPER is a Quartlery fold-out poster zine exploring vernacular creativity and ritual. Its four editions to date deal with the evolution of the intentionally terrible right wing meme; Children's playground games and the folk-process- as virus (with Poet Kate Davies); Football fan platforms and Ulverston's gentleman anarchist Martin Gilbert.
Martin was a student in the USA during the late 60's and early 70's. During this time he did a bit of what you might expect and a bit of what you might not. To supplement his studies Martin sold the alternative press on the streets of Atlanta and San Franscisco. Haight-Ashbury. Short, sweet, illustrated and in no way the whole story, Flypaper 4 looks at the times through the papers, flyers and community newsletters he brought back with him, excerpts from a chat with Martin and from email exchanges between Ulverston and Atlanta with Stephanie Coffin, co-founder of The Great Speckled Bird.
The 5th ish is 28 page glossy that serves to document the RE project and includes home made and personalised / vandalised record sleeves, barely decipherable folk dance cassettes, the Ulverston Oss, the Horngarth, flyposters and the story behind a bit of 60's graffitti.
The most recent was handed over to Dot Dennett, a local maker, and it gives you a step by step visual guide to building Beadbots.
More to come.
