St. Louis fan Donn Brazier.published Title from 1972-1977.

It was among the earliest fanzines published by photocopier instead of the then-usual mimeograph. Brazier was director of the Museum of Science and Natural History in St. Louis. The museum contracted for photocopying service with a specific number of copies each month, and Brazier used the surplus left after museum business to pub his ish, which made a tight limit to the number of copies he could publish.

Brazier made extensive use of the medium by cutting and pasting in his correspondents' locs instead of retyping them, literally slicing them into ribbons to divide up his lettercol by topic, so parts of the same letter might appear in several sections of the zine. This unique way of creating a conversation among regular letterhacks was sometimes bewildering to new readers.

Brazier was rigorous about requiring active response from recipients or cutting them off his necessarily limited mailing list. That and his lettercolumn style created a tight circle of regulars who came to be called Titlers.
