Undercurrent #2 Now Available for Pre-Order!

The second issue of Undercurrent is about to be released!

This issue features an article about the Kansas City filmmakers community, a vintage article about community healthcare from the Westport Trucker, news from DIY collectives in the area, poetry, art, and much more!  Copies will be ready in another week, and we are now taking pre-orders.

For this issue we are offering a special supporter’s package to help fund the printing of free copies.  This supporter’s package will include a first edition copy of Undercurrent #2 with an original limited edition hand-printed cover. We’ll also include a selection of zines and other materials donated by various DIY artists in the Kansas City area.

The special supporter’s package will cost $5 + $2 for shipping and packaging. This price pays for the printing of the zines, as well as free copies to be distributed over the next few months.

Only 25 of these limited edition packages will be available. After these sell out, there will be no more hand-printed copies left. We suggest that you preorder and reserve a copy now before we run out!

For more info or to purchase a package, visit the purchase page.

Thank you for your continued interest and support! This zine wouldn’t be possible without you!

Test print for cover logo.  More details as they come!
