Books & Zines XXXIX : Shout Out to the Girls

I've shared peeks of the book, #shoutouttothegirls here before and that I’m lucky to have two illustrations in it. Today I’m sharing more because it’s International Women’s Day so it feels fitting.

We’re also having a launch at The Little Bookroom, 759 Nicholson St, Carlton Nth form 6:30 pm to celebrate. By we I mean, I’ll be joining fellow illustrators Sonia Kretschmar, Emma Leonard, Syliviaa Morris, Cat MacInnes, Cathie Glassby and Zoe Caracatsanoudis. Tickets are $5 including light refreshments and a donation to the Malala Fund.

Books & Zines XXVIII : The Happy Prince

Back with a book for today's books and zine series. Richly textured and brimming with treasure-hunt like details this book keeps viewers visually entertained for hours plus it's a longer story than average too. Maise Paradise Shearring clearly had a lot of fun reinterpreting and illustrating this classic tale in her playful style including collage and traditional mediums.

The Happy Prince - A Tale by Oscar Wilde, illustrated and adapted by Maisie Paradise Shearring. This edition published by Thames & Hudson, London, 2017.

Books & Zines XXVII : Girlie Pains

Time for a zine in this #booksandzinesseries of mine. 

This is an oldie from artist Mel Stringer, a series of 8 mini zines on the angsty musings and daily observations of youthful times. I've kept it in it’s original envelope, the cost of stamps having doubled since hint at it's age. Crafted using black ink on one ­sided A4 pages then cut and folded, this series is a great examples of perfect diy zine simplicity!

Girlie Pains, mini zine series of 8, self­ published by Mel Stringer, 2009. 

And Mel is still creating zines today, I love that! Enjoy!
