Birmingham-based wonder Harry Palmer announces the launch of the third (issue k/3) Eccentric City newspaper. The paper — the World’s First Eccentric Tabloid — will “preview, present and promote the nuances of personal and creative pursuits, interests and fascinations”.

  • Crypto-taxidermy and outrageous Darwin mockery aka ‘The Squire’
  • Sheep disguised as cameras…
  • A Fatal balloon duel.

  • Durational reading in public places causing concern…
  • Travelling tips for female solo adventurers and those who want to hitch-hike…
  • Spam.

    Hello BINS. Thanks to Jon for giving the paper a super promotion. What makes this paper a triumph is that it concerns many other people – past and present worlds, and the only place you see any logos at all is in an article that largely brought postive agit-prop confusion to the city of Birmingham last year. Easy to say, but hard to do – thanks Jon for contributing to our 'other' culture here in Birmingham and beyond!

    -Harry.
