The next Oik (28) will appear mid January 2016
Postage costs are still high but production costs are lower. Taking advantage of Lulu's frequent deals we can get an Oik for as low as £3. Those distributed by hand should cost not much more. For those sent out by post add about £1.
The Crazy Oik is now on sale in the New Cornerhouse (renamed Home) at 2 Tony Wilson Place
