Keyhole: The Handwritten Issue
I'd been waiting for this one since I heard about the format. The pride of Nashville, Keyhole Magazine, released their fifth issue, completely handwritten. It is a wonder. I haven't had time to read much of it yet, but the award for best handwriting goes to Jenny Hanning. The words look like a modern font, printed by a computer. Her two stories are, also, really great. The ending of "Garden" is so hypnotic that I found myself saying, all day, "Three to three to three is nine. Nine sisters which are us-we-mine." If I were you, I'd treat myself to a holiday present of Keyhole Magazine.
