The Book of Chumps

This is a slideshow of the "Book of Chumps", a zine that Richard Lynn and I put together for The Chumps, one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time, on the occasion of their last show (on June 14, 2013 at the Legendary White Swan).

We printed 60 copies of the zine on 11" x 17" paper in half-fold format. There are some photos that are sideways, but since that's how they were formatted on the zine, I decided not to change the orientation for the slideshow.
