handmade personal zine
In the summer of 2019, just a few months after my grandfather’s death, I unpacked his library. Books were the only thing we had in common and so I wrote a perzine to process the experience.
What unfolded was a meditation on the process of collecting and keeping… and what it all means when someone has to sift through our things after we’re gone.
Museum of the Western World
handmade art zine
A parody zine of souvenir museum guides, containing descriptions of the monuments contained within the “Suburban Galleries,” of the Museum of the Western World, dedicated to the famed Late Capitalist era. Leave reason at the coat check!
Created in collaboration with Amy Rajala.
Black Budgie Zine Distro
The old favourite is back!
Back from the dead is Black Budgie Zine Distro! No longer resting in power, it moved over to Etsy and currently hosts my back catalogue of zines, along with recent projects like Trev’s Books and Museum of the Western World!
