Vague

Housmans are able to describe Tom Vague as a close colleague and aficianado. The relationship goes back almost as long as 'Vague' itself - Tom and Housmans have collaborated on a number of projects over the years...not least of which was Dark Star Publishing, a joint venture between Tom and members of the Housmans team. If you are still curious, and want to find out more about Vague Publications or current Vague projects drop by the shop!

‘Even though Vague magazine has been around for a while now, it’s such a good thing that every new one is worth getting excited about. Vague is a massively self-indulgent project, as obsessive and naïve as its maker is. It spreads its net wide, and so catches many great things otherwise lost to us and to history.’  Jenny Turner City Limits

A Vaguely definitive bibliography of Tom Vague.
