zine2018 Last Six Issues (PDF Bundle)


zine2018 was 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. The project is now over, but hopefully still resonate to those navigating their own tough years..

This bundle contains the PDFs of the last six issues in one download. There is also a bundle available of the last six issues in print for only $20. You can see the bundle of the first six issues, along with the individual print issues, there as well. The PDF bundle of the first six issues is here.
