‘Zine scene

June 19, 2013

When I came back from the US, two beautiful packages were waiting for me. (The world is shrinking…)


First were two ‘zines by Joanna Tagada, a French artist, based in Berlin. She shares paintings, drawings, sewing, photographs and poems. The mood is subtle, graceful and deep. She takes us on a tour of her private studio, through photos recording a place that no longer exists. I love the idea of permanently recording a temporary space, so romantic. What are your creative spaces, now or in the past?







The other ‘zine, The Way Home by Sewon, is about her move to and from New York City this last year. It makes me think about the moving process–the moves I’ve made and plan to make… It reminds me so much of my friend Katie, who will be moving to New York soon.





I feel like a gallery exhibit was delivered to me in the mail… I think I’m officially addicted. I’m so fascinated now by alternative publishing. Doesn’t it make you want to create your own ‘zine? What would yours look like?

    I had never heard of a zine before. And, Katie, didn’t realize you are moving to NY! Apparently, I live under a rock… I would be so lost without this blog!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I downloaded vine (looks like zine) the other day, so I’m not totally clueless ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The pictures are beautiful, so many creative ideas… Kathryn, what would your zine look like?

    Superb site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics discussed
    in this article? I’d really like to be a part of community where I
    can get feed-back from other knowledgeable individuals that share
    the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    people think. Also, thank you for allowing for me to comment!
