Monday’s zine- What Makes Me Smile, A Guide to Being Happy by Christie Powers
A light-hearted threefold zine, full of hand drawn typography and writing about ways to be happy.
Again all drawn with fine liner (0.3mm and 0.5mm) and coloured with horrible felt pens.
The first zine in Zine-A-Day, called Philomathy by Christie Powers.This zine is concentrating on hand drawn typography and elements of illustration. These few shots show some of the words I chose for today’s zine. Eventually, it will be staple bound.
Enjoy and let me know if you want one for yourself, more pictures will be uploaded soon onto cargocollective.
A philomath is a lover of learning, from Greek philos (“beloved,” “loving,” as in philosophy or philanthropy)
I recently discovered Jason Fulford in Spring 2011’s issue of SOURCE magazine, I was reading a summary/review of his project The Mushroom Collector. What I enjoy the most about this set is the almost spontaneity of the images he found or captured. The set began when he was given a set of mushroom images and from then on a project unraveled into this peculiar book. Not knowing fully what the book is about is really appealing because a lot of the time when creating art or taking a photograph I don’t think there needs to be a deep meaning, at the time you did it because you wanted to.
If anyone wants to buy me this book I would really appreciate it, it’s only £145.00
Jung and Wenig are based in Berlin and own a small design studio. They practice photography and are featured in publications and books. Although not all of their work is appealing for me, what really caught my eye was their version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
