Something a bit different

March 24th, 2008

At the end of last year I made a zine for a uni project. I meant to print it and sell some copies, but it never happened and I kind of forgot all about it. Since being in Switzerland I’ve been going through folders on my laptop tidying things up, so I thought I might as well post this. The A to Z theme is pretty self explanatory, a double page (about something I like) per letter . All photos and drawing are by me, apart from the picture of a photocopier that I stole from google images and the vintage postcards that came from a big box in the loft.
