Now I want my own travelling journal to be bursting. Well, I always have, but definitely even more so now. I don’t really see people write in their notebooks in the outside world anymore. Shame really. I wanna see what’s in your journal as well. We’re all brilliant in our own way so show me. I’m sure I’ll be touched.
The Last Billboard
A 36-foot-long billboard located at the corner of Highland and Baum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Every month, a different individual is invited to take over the billboard to broadcast personalized messages, which are spelt out using wooden letters that are changed by hand.

I’m going to try that number. I really hope it’s a poem. These signs are amazing.
It’s time for our yearly blog contest! Last year it was tumblr-only but this year we’re opening the doors wide to all online sites!
Rules: post a (new) photo of you holding one of the books or zines we’ve published (only books or zines actually published under the name Pioneers Press, though Jessie Duke’s Hard Fifty Farm zine counts too).
Either tag it “Pioneers Press” if you’re on tumblr, or email the photo or a link from your blog, twitter, Facebook, website, etc, to email@example.com and you’ll be in the running. We don’t want to miss any (we’ll be posting them all here) so don’t forget to tag it or let us know by sending it. Last year we missed a few.
Winners will be chosen by numbers pulled out of AN ACTUAL HAT. Grand prize (open to US entries only because the shipping will be HEAVY DUTY) one copy of EACH of our books and zines we’ve published AND a year-long subscription to EVERYTHING we publish under the Pioneers Press and Punch Drunk Press banners! (There will be other prizes too.)
Starts NOW ends August 1st!
Here’s a list of the books and zines we publish.
Here are last year’s winners…
Definitely going in on this one as I have adam gnade's the do-it-yourself guide to fighting the big motherfuckin’ sad now. If you have their stuff you should too! it’s pretty neat seeing what sort of people buy their stuff which should be EVERYONE. Seriously, they’re that good hehe.
