Zine : Looped
Looped, a zine by Gracia Haby & Louise Jennison.
A 21cm X 15cm, 16 page colour zine with copper staples.
Our Looped zine includes the text, A whisker lighter. "Passing the library, a sizeable section of the lawn was fenced off. A low temporary barrier had been pegged in place to enable the grass its forty-winks to regenerate. A kip to allow the new seed to take hold seemed just what I needed also. And there, atop the bed of sleeping grass, a kit of pigeons, a flock of gulls, and a quarrel of sparrows with no desire to call in on the old ballroom when they had such a prize. Safe, and in possession of a sheltered location, they basked in the warmth of the sun. The pigeons, in particular, pulled out and fanned their feathers to make the most of the solar heat. Their fans lent the scene an air of Sunday picnickers, an Eden for Birds Only, and I was glad I had chanced upon this moment that threw sunlight on my impression of the world. It was in these small and ephemeral shards that life made sense. All that was good, transfigured into form! It was in these quiet encounters that I was pierced and purpose was found."
All zines are wrapped in an envelope with cardboard insert to ensure arrival of a smooth zine to your door.
Zine proportions: 10.5cm X 10.5cm.
