When I was first approached with the idea for Mimeo Mimeo, Olson was what immediately came to mind. The journal as archive is very appealing to me. In my opinion, all Special Collection Libraries should have a publication like Olson. Mimeo Mimeo the Magazine centers on the critical essay, but Mimeo Mimeo the Blog incorporates my initial vision.
As a journal Olson is absolutely amazing, where else are you going to get to read Olson's Swordfishing Journal from 1936 or Clark Coolidge's notes to an Olson lecture in Vancouver in 1963. Truly an inspiration, a benchmark of excellence for Mimeo Mimeo.
