Is your appetite for words on paper never sated? You could check out the new issue of the Runcible Spoon, their biggest yet, focused on a theme near and dear to the hearts of the 21st century proletariat: CHEAP LIVING. (That captivating image above is a spread from said issue created by the always inspiring Thu Tran.)
Friends over at the Tumblr HQ spaceship got a side hustle going in photocopied know-how, and it’s in tips on making HOT POTS of SOUP. I’ve heard if you’ve got a stone and a good story it’s all you need to make some, maybe their zine will confirm that.
'Venue to Menu' - The Illustrated Musicians Recipe Booklet by Gutfeelings Zine
There are only 9 hours left on this. We have already raised enough money to pay all of the artists, but any extra will really help us out with printnig costs (which are going to be a lot since it is a full colour 52 page zine!). Check the link to read about all the awesome musicians that are involved, then maybe donate like £1/$1/€1. You get something in return for your money, check out the rewards section!
it would also be awesome if you could reblog this.
What was your first zine about and when was it made?
Sarah: Blue Rib. It was a hand written and drawn zine about neighbors I had growing up, musicians I liked beginning with the letter ‘K’, films I had seen with boys I knew and how to make nachos. I printed it up in black and white and then would color in each one and give them away for free.
Describe your most recent zine.
Sophie: Sarah and I have just spent the summer in LA where we worked on our England themed issue so we decided that when we returned to London we would base the next issue on all things America. As well as recipes and food related articles, we usually pick the things that we find most interesting about the theme; the people it encompasses, the tales and stories it evokes, the music or the writers and artists who relate to it. This issue has some of our most exciting recipes like Sarah’s Bacon and Bourbon Ice Cream and our Martini and Mint Juleps recipes. It’s the perfect read to get you drunk and hopped up on sugar. We also made illustrated top trump cards of some of the people we met while we were there to go along with the issue.
