Entropy...Comes To Us All - Morgan Dawn Livejournal:The Here And Now
The Here And Now
Entropy...Comes To Us All

Art by Kathy Bushman

I've been scanning the old mimeograph versions of the first Star Trek fanzine, Spockanalia for the publisher who is participating in a fanzine preservation project. The first illo, by DEA, is the back cover of issue #2. As you can see, the paper has started disintegrating. Someone had tried to tape it back into place, but the page began to dissolve around the edges of the tape. The paper is very similar to the  rough, heavy construction paper you may have used for school arts and crafts. It has yellowed significantly over the past 40+ years. Entropy.....

The second image I am including because I like the composition of Spock and Mirror Spock with the IDIC symbol between them. The artist is Kathy Bushman. Most early fan art had to be minimalistic ink drawings because that is all fans  could reproduce on mimeograph machines.
