PAGES FROM THE CULTURAL ETHER: LOVE & BEAUTY #1: $1, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 30 pgs.

This is a collage-based zine that the author hopes readers will rework into their own art. Since these collages also include word bubbles, they end up coming off like a much cooler version of the Sunday funnies, with each page being a self-contained story. The collages draw heavily on what looks like Victorian clip, which seems to be a theme (a good one!) with zines from The Cultural Ether. I imagine reading this zine as a good palate cleanser between heavy reads or something to kick start your creativity if you’re in a rut. –Bianca (The Cultural Ether, 2440 E.
