Little Fish: A Memoir From a Different Kind of Year by Ramsey Beyer $15.99 – If you’ve been shopping at Quimby’s regularly checking out our zines and comics, you might be famililiar with the zine List (one of our best-selling zines) by former Chicago zinester and screen-printer Ramsey “Everydaypants” Beyer (one of the original founders of Chicago Zine Fest). Ramsey took some of her zines from when she was 18, just starting college (years and years ago!), and put parts of them in her book, along with commentary about those pieces, that are really the by-products of the introspection that comes with age. The zine-y and mini-comics-y stuff in the book (which by the way, were better then any zine I could do at the age), appeals to the scrappy aesthetic readers have come to enjoy in Ramsey’s work, but then also it’s a thoughtful and compelling narrative about growing into a person. Recommended. -LM
