Things I Thought But Was Wrong - Issue 00
Quarter Duck Publications
A5, 24 pages, full colour.
Things I Thought But Was Wrong is the perfect zine for the mid-teens of the 21st century. It consists of a crowd-sourced series of Twitter length statements, each illustrated by an Instagramable artwork. The concept is immediately explained by the title - those moments in which something you always thought was true is shown to be wrong.
The combination of absurd mishearings and naive misunderstandings with the resulting illustrations makes for a smart, funny, engaging zine.
I hope I'm not wrong, but I predict big things for Things I Thought But Was Wrong.

Review by Nathan Penlington
****I picked this zine up last weekend at Cultural Traffic - a new publishing arts fair held near London's Brick Lane. They produce regular alternative publishing events in the capital, with a really diverse range of makers and sellers. If you're interested check out culturaltraffic.com for more info****
