Related Post: Upcoming Zines: “The Ink Drinker,” Etc.

***

All last week, I was busy putting together “The Ink Drinker” zine and was having a great time doing so. Plus, they’re turning out even better than I expected!

Production of these zines involve printing, folding, hammering, and sewing. Who knew I’d be hammering an awl into my lovely paper zines… with a real, heavy-duty hammer nonetheless!

The covers are printed on 65-pound, nautral-color paper, while the interior pages are printed on 24-pound, white paper. They look really fancy!

Preview of the finished zines coming soon. :)
