I had a nice time recently researching pictures of chickens. As with any Google image search, you can't be sure you're not going to be scarred for life by what you come across, so I was pleased to discover a chicken having a jog in a field quite early on. Had she just escaped certain death? Or was there a hot cockerel that she'd just spotted, over there, that she needed to gallop towards? Qui sait. But she looked free and glad and as though it was the beginning of something new.
Hence her likeness taking pride of place on the cover of the first issue of You've Got Mail zine, NEW BEGINNINGS. I cracked open the old triangle jar, the chicken ran through them and so was born my first zine cover, which I'm excited to announce contains all kinds of lovely everyday correspondence and is available on You've Got Mail's new Etsy shop right now for a mere £1, all in.
Read a little more what it's all about in the zine's latest blog and amusez-vous.
