The zine community is flourishing, despite the obvious rise of the vlogger, the blogger and the use of digital publishing. It is still good to see hand-drawn illustrations on paper, and this is an area that my son is starting to get interested in as well.
I remember getting involved in similar publications when I was a student, and using the offset litho or banda machine to churn out copies. Plastic follows the story of a Plastic bottle through the millennia, from the death of a dinosaur, to the plastic processing, to its eventual disposal and journey into the sea. I like the idea that students could create something similar, and perhaps create a stop motion, or flip-book style animation.
Click the link above to get your own copy for just £2 (plus postage) and support independent artists like Nick by seeking out similar publications. There are a few other interesting-looking publications and images on Nick's website, with a landscape theme. It's no surprise to hear also, perhaps that Nick is a geographer.
