About Bindle

bin•dle (noun): a bundle of clothes or bedding, stereotypically carried on a stick by runaway children and transients


We all wander through our lives, and we collect memories, possessions, and relationships. Bundle them all together, and you have yourself a bindle. Our zine represents a collection of writing and art and photography – a bindle of creativity that we send across America, a tramp in search of a mailbox.
