"i left this here for you to read" (2008)

A hand-made magazine created, edited, designed, and illustrated by anyone who wanted to help-- and then left in public places by other volunteers around the world.

Full Description

Between August 2008 and October 2009, we printed 40 issues of "i left this here for you to read." There were only 50 copies of each issue total, and never reprinted any issues. We then left these in public places (such as on part benches, on buses, in airports and dentists' offices...) for anyone to take--free of charge. So far, we've left our magazines in about 75 cities in the US and in Canada.

Each contributor received 2 copies of the issue his or her material appeared in; and people who helped create or distribute the magazine also received copies.

This project was started by Tim Devin, but grew to involve more than 300 people.
