This little zine is the cutest. In the opening note, author Rommel Wood says that the zine is a "love letter to Patsy, full of things I like to imagine were true about her or at least things I think might have made her laugh." Inside, readers will find a ranked list of Patsy's hairdos (with photos), images of houses that still exist that Patsy lived in, graphs of Patsy's music, quotes from Patsy, illustrations, and more. One thing I particularly love are the end-pages at the front and back of the zine—a hand lettered pattern of Patsy's first and last name. You can just see it, running diagonally through the front cover in the image above. It's little touches like this that make Wood's zine stand out. Her hypothesis pages were both funny and fitting (What Did Patsy Smell Like? A Hypothesis... Dandelions + fog / Things Elvis Had In His Pockets the 1st Time He Met Patsy... A Hypothesis... Cough drop wrapper). I also liked the way the zine is illustrated—using slightly fuzzy photos, screencaps, and blurry illustrations all placed in black-outlined boxes. I feel like Patsy Cline would have found this zine really charming.
