Jim Martin describes his "Flatland" catalog as a "news stand by mail" and a "catalog of unusual lore." It is by far the most comprehensive one-stop-shop for kooky and eccentric publications. He carries lots of the more "high-end" zines (bookzines, multi-colored covers, slick production, square-bound, etc.) along with hard-to-find and super-small press books. From ufology to Situationist rantings to anarchism to experimental art and literature - it's all here.
Each issue of the catalog includes articles and interviews of interest to fringe-o-philes. Also, imports from the UK, Sweden, India, and Canada.
The catalog is available for $2.00.
It's really hard to make a small distribution business work, especially one that carries such marginalia. Others have tried and failed. Jim's one man shop is an encouraging success.
