Summer/Sadness.

Two art zines of note: this forty-page Summer Cocktails collection by illustrator and designer Jordan Kay (the inclusion of found paper inserts makes each copy one-of-a-kind),


and SadGirls, which features art and writing by "girls who make things and have lots of feelings." I love it.

Find the VIOLETTDRAKT Etsy shop here, and SadGirls, here. (With SadGirls on its second issue and the Summer Cocktails zine labeled "Vol. 1," I'm assuming there's more to come from both - I wonder if Jordan will ever include a recipe for my personal favorite, the Corpse Reviver #2? I plan to stay tuned.)

I love the Sad Girls- " Girls who make things and have lots of feelings" sounds like my kind of zine!

Oh that cocktail book is gorgeous! Technically it's Autumn and looking pretty chilly, but if I turn up the heating I can get away with making a few summer cocktails, right?

These are both such amazing looking zines! I need to get my hands on them. The Corpse Reviver No. 2 is also my favorite; I love seeing people who aren't familiar with the drink make a slight expression of horror hearing at the name.

I want a subscription to both of these immediately!

Shoko said...

Bea, absolutely! :)

HY, I do, too! Such a great name.

I love the "handsome as dead presidents" quote!

These are so cool!

I love "girls who make things and have a lot of feelings". (I might relate to that a little too much, ha) But at we're in good company! I read a quote from the patron saint of Sad Girls, Sylvia Plath, today that I think is fitting:
"I am still so naive; I know pretty much what I like and dislike; but please, don't ask me who I am. A passionate, fragmentary girl, maybe?"
