Zines I Like #8: Star Farmer by FyreFies

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.

  1. Thanks so much for blogging about this. I’ve decided against renewing for now cause I’m working on a complete book-size volume. 🙂

    Best wishes,
    May

    • That will be awesome! Please let me know when your bookish version is available, so I can spread the word! 🙂
