Hello Billy.
Cuneiform is a classic APA. APA contributions were often called “zines”, so APA contributors are pretty much always zinesters or amateur journalists. There are many kinds of APA’s, many variations in how they’re done, but maybe you could sum them up by calling them reader-written discussion zines, a zine made up of zines. I’ve also called them sort of a group letter. The first APA started in the mid or late 1800’s when cheap desktop letterpresses became available. Like zines themselves, the only way to understand what APA’s are all about is ordering some and doing them. They’re too hard to define or explain. You have to see them and do them. If you want a few copies, send some dollars/stamps to:
