Good day, friends! I’m pleased to announce the release of my new zine, “Glaciers”.  The story of “Glaciers” is told in two parts, a folktale and a personal account of my travels in Iceland. The zine is 16 pages, 4.25” x 5.5”. The front and inside covers are silkscreened in 4 colors on blue drawing paper and grey card stock. The interior pages are risograph-printed in 2 colors on white cover stock. “Glaciers” is available for online purchase through my etsy shop. I’ll also be selling copies in person later this month at SF Zine Fest. Thanks!
