Climate Emergency Reading Recs
and "Getting Started with Making Electronic Music" and other new zines! plus links!
Mostly just writing to give you a heads up that the zine popup at Drink Books, my friend Kim Kent’s books and natural wine shop, is open through Sunday May 22nd, 1-7pm. Get in there, Seattle people—it’s full of beauty and delight!
It’s been a busy last month or so in the studio. We hosted Bookluck, the zine popup, and we made a bunch of zines:
Reprint of Bike Rambles around Seattle
Reprint of Sensitive
I’ve been very motivated to release projects before the summer starts. The weather starts getting better and the days get longer and I feel the pull to finish up what’s been in the works that’s close enough to wrap up. This summer I am going to avoid having project deadlines or commitments as much as I can, and spend as much time as possible outside. I want to swim in lakes, go down rivers in the inflatable kayak, go mountaineering and alpine climbing, go on a bike tour, soak in a hot spring, visit the sea anemones in the tidepools, spend time with friends and family. I do plan to make a new photograph-based zine or two for the Photographic Center Northwest book and zine fair in July, where we’ll have a table. I’m aiming to just play and see what comes up, and have a rest time to refill my creative energy this summer.
I’ll have to tell you all more about all the new zines and publications later! For now, here’s a look at some of the interior of Climate Emergency Reading Recs during the printing process:
If you’d like to head up to Phinney Ridge in the next few days: the zines are in Drink Books from 1-7pm through Sunday! 💙 Drink Books is at 59th and Phinney, next to the pie store and across from the zoo, on the 5 bus line. Also, if you go up there, I really like the pastry or breakfast (all day) tacos at Fresh Flours, the tea or pastry at Coyle’s Bakeshop, the Greenwood library is really a pretty one, and Seattle Recreative is definitely worth a stop.
Some things I’ve been reading, that you might like too:
Zach Clarkis on his risograph printed artist book, Brilliant Science.
Charlie Loyd on sails and carbon emissions.
Avery Trufelman on reigniting love of clothing.
That’s it for now. As always, write back and say hello if you’d like.
