Only Sometimes is a really well done and somewhat mysterious zine. Featuring pictures, and what seem to be quotes from song lyrics — or maybe the author’s own writing — it has a great flow and sucks you right in.
The photos are cute, fresh and inviting, like a photo of rumpled sheets on an unmade bed. I couldn’t get over the Polaroid of swans on a pond at night: it was almost haunting. Photos are paired with alternate pages of writing that is sweet and sad and hints at something deeper. The intensely personal yet vague lines like “we forget the ones we love, and turn into what we hate,” leave room for anyone to empathize. Overall, I thought it was a great read. (Samantha Trees)
