Every now and then you’ll still spot someone wearing a Hermenaut tee.
The Hermenaut crew used to have “meetings” at Doyle’s, a legendary pub in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood — where I grew up, and where Hermenaut was headquartered in its final years. Pictured here, from left: Ingrid Schorr, James Parker, Kristin Parker.
For a Hermenaut ad, we created a scene based on Ingmar Bergman’s Persona.

Some nice reviews of Hermenaut.
This is a 25-part series in which HiLobrow editor Joshua Glenn, who from 1990–93 published the zine Luvboat Earth and from 1992–2001 published the zine/journal Hermenaut, bids a fond farewell to his noteworthy collection of zines, which he recently donated to the University of Iowa Library’s zine and amateur press collection.
