Joshua of Basic Paper Airplane (and numerous other projects) has a broad scope, as behooves a zine-writer. We’ll take it one step further. Joshua is sort of like the small-press world equivalent of a Renaissance Man.
Formerly the head of a tiny publishing house called SSO Press which released artist’s books, broadsides, zines and chabooks, Joshua now focuses on working with arts collective Use Your Words, running a zine distro and publishing Basic Paper Airplane. His zines have covered everything from genealogy to film to simplicity to cops to the media to the ghosts of Snohomish county to Kindles to the Postal System (deep breath)…and beyond. It’s amazing. It’s inspiring.
