Molly Bloom the poetry mag (not the band, the blogging fashionista or the Joycean uber-character, only one of whom is related) came into the world in 1980, born of a dispute over the continued use of the name Perfect Bound. Unhappily, the excellent content and good production (for its time) of the debut issue was not matched by distribution, so the end followed not long after the beginning. The first online issue, in May 2013, featured a generous selection of work from the printed original (right) alongside some more recent poems by the same writers, and others.
