Submissions-based zine. The initialism "LTLE" stands for "Letters To the LTLE Editor".
Anyone could submit a letter to me about any subject, and I would print it on
a hand-drawn background. Two issues were produced, the first in November
2014, the second in April 2015.

A page from LTLE issue 2, in which the editor responds to a letter The text reads:
"Editor’s letter regarding the editor’s letter to the intended letter-writer
It has been brought to my attention, via a letter to the editor,
that I have been discriminatory in my publishing practices in that I only
publish letters that have actually been written and sent to me.
As such, in this issue of LTLE, I have instituted an Unwritten
Letter Holding Space. This space will contain the potential of all the
letters that never made it out of the letter-writer’s imagination.
It is all very well for me to say I am making a space for the
publication of the unfeasible and incomprehensible, but if I don’t make
space for that which is ultimately unfeasible and incomprehensible, i.e.,
that which is imperceptible or even unimaginable, then I have not carried
this project to its logical conclusion.
Yours in unfeasible specificity,
