Font and Frock: A Brief History

2010:

Font and Frock came into the world with passionate intentions. Several months later, it died the way it was born: as a double-sided, hard copy ‘zine. The hand-assembled publication had two covers, two themes, and one goal: to present arts-related topics in a variety of intelligent, witty, and distinct ways. The front half (Font) was brim-full with original poetry, short stories, and literary essays. The back-end (Frock) covered classic film, pop culture, and fashion.

Contributors came from across the United States and Canada. It was a true labor of love, and one I had every intention of fostering to success.

Then I got engaged.

Between working full-time, moving to a new flat, and planning a wedding, something had to give. That something was, of course, Font and Frock. By the time I settled into newly married bliss, my not-so-little publication was a thing of the past. In the  meantime, other creative pursuits had muscled their way into my heart and head.

My fondness for the project remained.

I always knew that, one day, I’d return to Font and Frock. One day, when I had more time. One day, when things weren’t so hectic. One day, after I had accomplished other creative goals.

2015:

That day is almost here.

The new Font and Frock is a bit different from its predecessor. The vessel of expression has changed from a ‘zine to a blog (for now, at least). She’s also half the girl she used to be, content-wise. A Small Press Life took over where Font left off: it is home to my obsession with obscure books, dead writers, and all things old-timey literature related. This blog, then, will focus on what remains: (classic) films, fashion, flash fiction, and feminism.

I hope you’ll hang around to see her come back to life.
