City Moon archives: edited by David Ohle & Roger Martin


THE CITY MOON was a newspaper published by Roger Martin & David Ohle from 1973 to 1985 in Lawrence, Kansas. Per Ohle, they "had a vast collection of old—and sometimes new—newspapers and magazines from which we mined headlines and stories that we 'processed' into better and more interesting stories and headlines. This mix of current and old news gave the paper a steampunk aspect." More background information about City Moon here. And here is the official record at the Spencer Research Library at KU where the archives are housed.
