Amy Adoyzie (creator of Lululand and Funzilla zines, layout genius extraordinaire for Razorcake, and all around rad lady) knows how to tell a story. She’s one of those people who you don’t care how many times she repeats a story because each time is bound to be slightly different, and each difference is going to be worth hearing. She is one of the most talented people I’ve met. In addition to her zines, she illustrates, plays in bands, takes pictures, works hard in a pretty wide range of jobs (like heading off to China to teach English), and writes a column. All this and she makes a lot of sandwiches too.

In Post-it, Amy writes about her time working as a New Media Associate for a local PBS branch. The majority of the writing comes from entries on her blog, with additional contributions and insights added later. I’m not the biggest proponent of perzines, but this falls into many of my categories of exception. First, it’s funny. I laughed in a range from giggle to guffaw (with even a few chortles thrown in for good measure). Secondly, it’s interesting. While I have no desire to ever work in an office environment, I’m intrigued by it, and by the people who do work there. Throughout the zine, Amy tries to look at her job from a variety of angles: as fulfillment of an immigrant family’s American Dream and as a source of income, amusement, and frustration.

The topics range from venting about her boss, to work bathroom etiquette, to crushes, and to jars of jelly that she just can’t open. Even though I’d read the majority of this as her blog, I liked having it in a portable form, and the later additions (set in a different typeface to distinguish it) gives it a lot more coherence. Also, there’s no way that I would have sat and read this in its entirety online, and I think that reading it all at once gave me a better feel for the whole story. Highly, highly recommended. –Megan (while she’s in China, Amy Adoyzie c/o Razorcake, PO Box 42129, LA, CA 90042)
