A small scale, riso printed zine that reimagines Sue Brower’s essay “They’d Kill Us if They Knew”: Transgression and the Western (Journal of Film and Video , Vol. 62, No. 4 (Winter 2010), pp. 47-57). The body is set in Rockwell by Monotype Studio, and headings and captions are set in Job Clarendon by David Jonathan Ross. The page size (6 ½ by 4 ¼ inches) is a reference to old western dime novels, and the wide, horizontal format brings to mind the broad expanse of the cinematic western landscape.
