In My Father's Village
$3.00AUD/A5/48 pages, cover art by Jovana Yoka Terzic
A zine by Tamara Lazaroff describing a trip she took as a child with her father to his village in the the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. As a young girl, the oppression of patriarchy - as it is performed within the family, and by the State - is felt even if it can't yet be named. Time spent in the company of other girls and women reveals ways of articulating, resisting and overcoming this oppression.
Heart Break Hangover
A zine by Pablo Says, whose other zines include Sing Me to Sleep and Rhianna Love, and who is an expert at making beautiful zines out of everyday subject matter. This zine is about the break-up of a long-term relationship. It consists of short journal entries under titles like 'Modern Romance'; 'Falling'; 'Fucking'; I Wonder Where You are'. There are extracts of old journal entries, from the end of the relationship, the middle, and the beginning. It is a sad zine, but reading it will make you feel better.
A redesigned reprint of this classic zine from Sydney Exploratory Society. A Voice is an experimental narrative combining memories, historical facts and imagined conversations. The zine contains a series of degraded photocopied photographs of Daina, a mysterious woman the author may or may not actually know. The photographs are captioned with writing that may or may not be about Daina. The memories that the author describes may or may not be their own. A beautiful and brilliantly written exploration of memory, time, and narrative.
Guest Informant #11
Guest Informant is a conversation zine, meaning that two people sit down together in a room and record their conversation, which is then transcribed and made into an issue of the zine. This issue of Guest Informant is a conversation between Melbourne musician, writer and zinemaker Luke You and local man Thomas B.
The second issue of a zine made nearly ten years ago by Emma D. The first issue of Digging was written while Emma was a student at Sydney College of the Arts (SCA), and is about work that she was making and thoughts that she was thinking then. For the second issue she revisits SCA and the parkland that surrounds it, and revisits the themes of the first Digging: art, ghosts, ancient monuments, Ireland, time, gardens, motorbikes and memories.
