Teeny Portrait Zine

I’ve finally made a small edition of zines for taking to the Artists’ Book Market at the BALTIC Centre Of Contemporary Art this June.

I spent a long time just planning and testing – making lots and lots of trial booklets, all folded and laid out in different ways.

Each zine is teeny tiny, which makes it feel precious and sentimental. There’s something quite nice about the kraft paper envelopes too, with their simple texture and scalloped edge.

The zine is thematically held together by a quote, handwritten on the reverse:

All human beings are single beings – unique and unrepeatable. (John Paul II)

Lovely.
