A zine about booze. And existentialism.

Does anyone else think it’s kind of messed up that it’s already July 21st?  I sure do – I’m already beginning to feel wistful about the waning days of summer.  But instead of singing summer’s sweet lullaby just yet, I’ve decided to fix myself a mint julep and “bear the cost and suffer the weight of human existence.”  I am honored to be a part (the July part) of Printeresting‘s PDF of the Month Series!  This project has been on hiatus for over a year, but they’re getting it back up and running, kicking it off with a year’s worth of “Printeresting’s Guide Zines”, download-able PDFs from various artists and designers not normally associated with zine culture.  My contribution to this series is a zine (my first ever!) inspired by my January 2012 visit to Rowan Oak, William Faulker’s home in Oxford, Mississippi.  You can download it from the image above or, better yet, visit the Printeresting website for a higher-res file and assembly instructions.  Download it, print it out, fold it up, and be sure to check back next month for the latest installment!  Also, anyone in Maine should check out the related Rum Riot Press exhibit at Space Gallery in Portland – this show opens this Thursday, and celebrates small presses and independent publishing from around the world.
