By Jess Hogan
P.S. is a primary source history zine. A primary source is original material or evidence. They are from the period involved and have not been filtered through evaluations of interpretations. They span media type and include speeches, letters, records, journal entries, songs, newspaper or magazine articles, blog posts, survey research, artifacts (toys, tools, clothes, furniture, currency, etc.), art, cartoons, posters, maps, audio recordings, video footage, and photographs. These are the origins of secondary sources which utilize hindsight and analysis to produce various commentaries. This zine compiles primary sources from World War II in the United States. Jess uses collage and a scrap book style aesthetic to convey the reality of this time period.
