Biography/History

"You (November 2001-) zine takes the form of a free anonymous letter addressed to you from various writers, usually handwritten, often sealed in a paper bag, published by Luke. The letter is often signed off 'from Luke' but may also be written by different people. While the significant majority of issues are published in English, a small number of issues have been published in other languages, including German and Arabic. You is published on average in an edition of 200, however ocassional 'zine bagging workshops' have created significantly larger editions. You is freely circulated in Australia (Melbourne, Bendigo, Castlemaine, Traralgon, Sydney, Adelaide, Wollongong, and Perth), the U.S.A. (Chicago, San Francisco, Portland, Kansas City) and the U.K. (London and Glasgow). It is also distributed internationally by Sticky Institute and Microcosm Publishing" -- ZineWiki.
