Star Farmer is an awesome series of mini-zines written & hand-drawn by SuperMay of FyreFies. Each 16 page zine introduces a range of plants grown by the star farmers (each illustrated and including its latin name), notes on the properties of the plants, cultivation tips and warnings such as: “The bud of the Red Dwarf was used in love potions and lover’s sachets until it was discovered that any romance started using the Red Dwarf ended in tragedy.” Volume 3 explores the latest star farming trend for ‘hot pink’ varieties, and Volume 4 proffers advice on various elixirs and therapies available for enhancing growth of star plants. In short, unless you have a severe allergy to whimsy, you will love these zines!
The FyreFies Etsy Store is currently & sadly devoid of Star Farming manuals, but hopefully they will return soon. In the meantime, there are some rather nice vintage illustration digital files available.
