Includes unpublished photos of Propagandhi, the poster art of Steve Hallick, writing from Ian Lodewyks, Andrew Neufeld’s top-ten shows, photos by Doug Humiski and all sorts of crazy stuff.

Call * Response
is a big hardcover, LP size (12” by 12”) book, with sixty-four pages of punk rock mayhem and glory displayed in colour and b&w, published by Alchemical Press.

I copy-edited this book, back in December, in a day and a half. From PDF galleys.

And it nearly killed me (10 pages of single-spaced notes...) but it was nifty to work with the Alchemical Press boys.

I just got my copy tonight and am thoroughly impressed with the tightness of the design, especially the way they balanced text and image.

Yay! Fun!
