"Books Make Friends" was created to celebrate the power of zine-making in creating community with a special reflection on both our own project as a group of friends, and our peers we've grown close to.
It was created for the now-cancelled 2020 LA Art Book Fair, Shelved during Pandemic, and only rediscovered in October.
The phrase "Books Make Friends" is taken from a stamp of the same phrasing used by Duncan Hamilton at Pratt Institute to contextualize the end-of-course project (a collaborative zine box.)
This course was the humble beginnings of our project, which has morphed many times out from there after graduating.
The froggies were drawn by Thomas Colligan, the poster designed by Kurt Woerpel.
