Amass Zine - a foldy photo zine

October 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I've written before about my weird photo collections and I've been wanting to make a little zine for ages, so when Moo had a sale recently I decided to do something about it. I've made a 'foldy' zine before to give to people I was meeting at portfolio reviews, so I thought this might be a good approach for this. 

A browse of synonyms and a look in a dictionary later and I decided to call the zine series 'amass': to accumulate or collect.

Issue one is titled 'obsolete': no longer used; out of date, and focuses on my collection of images of empty notice/advertising boards, which I've mentioned before: Why I like abandoned noticeboards.

It's a 'foldy' zine, made from a sheet of A4 folded and cut to make a 6-page A7 booklet with an A4 poster on the reverse - three different image variations. The bright white paper is quite thick (200gsm) and I folded it by hand so it doesn't line up totally perfectly, but that's part of the charm!

If you know me in the 'real world' I'll have a few on me if you'd like a look, but if you'd like to buy one online they are available to buy on Etsy for £1.50 + postage (65p within UK, £1.17 international).

I'll be sporadicly making new ones with different collections so check back to see what I'm up to, and I'd love to know your thoughts!
