Abe’s Penny is a "micro-magazine" created by Anna and Tess Knoebel. "What’s a micro-magazine," you say, "and what’s a micro-magazine have to do my love of the mail?" Well, Abe’s Penny is a literary edition that is published in postcard form. Each volume contains four postcards that subscribers receive one by one, once per week, for one month. Each postcard features an image and a few lines of text. The full set of four postcards is a full story.
I love the idea of a serialized postcard magazine. The anticipation for what’s coming next, the knowledge that you’re getting something awesome in the mail; brilliant! They were recently interviewed online and Anna said, "Our current aim is simple: to pursue the dialogue. Of course, any print publication competes with online, but we’ve received such positive feedback. People still want tangible things." I think her statement is something we can all agree with. They’ve had three editions so far with a fourth coming out in June. You can see examples of the first editions here.
