for Post Typography's Fan Letter

New flash fiction about "that port town where vowels aint allowed".
I think I'm going to push the mini chap book format as far as I can with this one (the one where you take a 8.5 x 11" sheet of paper and fold it into a tiny book). It'll be a book example of the DIY culture that Bruce and Nolen of Post Type foster while taking meticulous care in design. Two days in, the initial design is looking good.
Ay, Lynch’s brief tryst with the sylph, told now in bar myths and hype, rivals even my spryest forays in Syzygy – that port town where vowels aint allowed. Signs hang myopic over byways. Type erased with rifle and knife. Not a brunch menu or lotto ticket or tattoo with a vowel in sight. Boring, really.
