zine2018 (All Print Issues)

from 5.00

zine2018 is a monthly zine project. Each issue explores a central theme through my personal lens, as I try to focus and explore issues, ideas and problems in and around my life. zine2018 is a personal project that, hopefully, helps others navigate this year as well.

Select which issue you wish to order from the dropdown. If you want more than one, you'll need to add each one to your cart individually (or check out the bundle option). All issues come with PDF included, which will be emailed to you manually (please allow up to 24 hours for this).
