Piltdownlad #01 – The Qüero Chingòn Stories


Originally published as individual micro-zines (2.75 x 4.25) under the title “Güero Chingòn” and distributed around downtown LA during the summer of 2011. They were written on my Olympia typewriter but transcribed into InDesign. My friend “Art Mark” illustrated them and Irina did the cover graphics.

I printed fifty to one hundred of each issue and attributed them to “Piltdownlad.” When that name went from a pseudonym to the name of the zine, the five Güero Chingòn issues became Piltdownlad #1. They were collected into one zine with a new introduction.


The first issue of Piltdownlad has been reprinted multiple times.
