The Talbot-Heindl Experience, LLC
The B’K Bitchin’ Book No. 1 – $15
For the 5th anniversary of compilation zine, The Bitchin’ Kitsch, the Talbot-Heindl Experience, LLC decided to do an open submission, juried book competition. The result is a wonderful compilation of writing and artwork from all your favorite submitters to The B’K, as well as some new blood. The B’K is a zine (and now a book) for artists, poets, prose writers, or anyone else who has something to say.
The Talbot-Heindls’ are a couple unlike any other. So completely awesome, they’ve been compared, in public, to John Lennon and Yoko Ono.* Both Chris and Dana Talbot-Heindl love all things creative. Their passion possessed them to create a zine in July of 2010, for anyone and everyone who has something to say with an artistic medium. That zine, The Bitchin’ Kitsch, has since taken off and gone international!
*It was only the one time, but it still counts.
