$3.50AUD/A6/62 pages

 

Giz's bilingual (French/English) punk personal/travel zine, from March 2018. "For a good part, this issue is about the feeling that our surroundings disappear into a uniformity, though this time I tried to talk with others about it. About what they do to resist, and how to keep things beautiful, or at least a little bit."

Cheaptoys #22

$3.50AUD/A6/64 pages

 

"Lately, I've been trying to figure out better what anarchism means to me... Knowing better what it is that I want to go towards, instead of endlessly reading and halfway supporting wannabe political leaders till I get the catch..." The northern-winter 2018/19 issue of Giz's bilingual (French/English) self-described 'anarchopunk zine' contains tour notes, a discussion about Detroit's Printing Co-op, and more.

A Voice

$4.00AUD/13x17.5cm/86 pages

 

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.

Digging #2

$2.00AUD/10x10cm/40 pages

 

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.

Omnia Sunt Communia

$2.00AUD/17x20cm/12 pages

 

Omnia Sunt Communia is a comic by Emma D that was drawn for If We All Spat At Once They'd Drown: Drawings About Class (edited by Sam Wallman). Omnia Sunt Communia is about the ideas of class consciousness and identity, and how the ruling class in the 19th century used their own sense of class identity to justify beliefs in a moral order which naturalised oppression and inequality, and criminalised poverty, ideas that continue to be 'common sense' today.

Para no sentirme solo/Typing Pool

$4.00AUD/42x14.7cm/42 pages + A5/8 pages

 

"During a week-long residency at Frontyard Projects (30 July-5 August 2018) I made a 'Simultaneous Collaborative Writing Machine' by looping a long strip of paper between two typewriters. I invited people to come and type with me, and this is the result." Typing Pool is accompanied by an eight page zine titled Para no sentirme solo, a piece that was also written during the Typing Pool residency, which is mostly about working in a post office.

Plastic Knife #17

$3.00AUD/A5/124 pages

 

Plastic Knife is a description-defying zine of humorous, absurd and/or macabre observations, aphorisms and statements. I am not suggesting these are influences on Plastic Knife, but if you are familiar with the work of Ivor Cutler, Mark E Smith, Yoko Ono, and you are sympathetic to conceptualism in general, you will understand Plastic Knife. If you are not you will not understand, but don't let that deter you.
