I made a new zine – it’s a snack-sized version of The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry.
Created for the recent MCA Zine Fair; it compiles many of my favourite places to eat and drink in Sydney.
It’s a bread-crumb-trail through the city that can multitask as a short guide for an out-of-towner or a local who is looking to revisit old favourites (or add new discoveries to their honour roll). I wrote a lot of it recently – but the zine also draws on material from the blog, too.
It’s a snack-sized portion – not a heavy encyclopedic guide – so I hope people enjoy blitzing through my light serving of recommendations. Creating the zine had this excellent side effect of reminding me that we’re lucky to have so many brilliant cafes, bars and restaurants in Sydney.
As you can see from these pictures, it’s a handmade affair, so I only produced 100 copies (most of it while binge-watching House of Cards and hoping the sneaky Frank Underwood would get his comeuppance). The photos are by Will Reichelt and, as usual, they’re ridiculously good. If you’d like to pick up one of the remaining zines, you can order them directly from my Bigcartel page.
And thanks to everyone who dropped by the MCA Zine fair to buy a copy; it made the (incredibly) late nights trying to finish it in time highly worth it.
PS And because I’ve had a few people quiz me about this – and yes, there are still copies left of my Japan zine if you’d like to snap one up and enjoy an A5-sized detour to Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Naoshima.Tags: MCA Zine Fair, The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry zine, zines
WOW! I adore zines – the intimacy of the handmade object. I love how your zine looks so polished, but has little hand-crafted details. The post-it notes with the forks and spoons is adorable!
