MWP will chiefly be exhibiting a selection of one-of-a-kind books from the Tall Tales series. But we also wanted to take the opportunity to make some new zines especially for Booktown.
Awhile back I began some experiments with folded zines using iPad apps for the layout and design. They never came to fruition, partly because other projects intervened. These unresolved tests became the basis for the new work.
I began with a grid constructed on Strip Designer. Images of my artwork, variously altered in the Etchings, Face on Coins, Pic Collage and Phoster apps, were downloaded into the grid. The zines were laser printed, then cut and folded.
The four zines I've made using this new method are: The Shadow Women, Parts 1-3 and Republic of Mothstralia - Coins of the Realm, featuring the infamous Moth Woman Vigilantes.
