Debbie is not particularly fond of the endearing nickname, Debbie. “I prefer Debra,” says Debbie. “No one calls me Debbie but people in my family.”  Nonetheless, the name Debbie has become an iconic title for my dear mother.

Debbie Issue I is devoted to educating the public on “need to know” Debbie facts. Between these pages, Debbie begins to come to life as you, my dear readers, learn the ins and outs of my mother. Inspired by the work of Martin Venezky, the publication is primarily assembled through collage. Utilizing an archive of texts between my mother and myself, readers are invited to delve into the humorous, quirky, and loving relationship between a mother and daughter.
