This post is to welcome the zines of Britta Jarvis of JaguarSnail into the TangleCrafts fold. 🙂 Britta is a local artist & crafter who I met through a mutual friend, a couple of years ago. We have since spent many a happy hour on the production line together and have discovered lots of common interests – the most obvious being zines, mail art, and a weakness for terrible puns… We are currently scheming to bring you various collabrative projects (largely involving me harnessing Britta’s amazing – and speedy! – stamp-carving skills!). In the meantime, 3 of Britta’s mini zines are now available in the TangleStore:
I Love Mail! – quite a maxi mini zine at 20 pages long, but standard mini zine dimensions. It includes 8 things Britta loves about mail, an envelope tutorial, a postal poem, an interview with a Royal Mail postman, and more. Illustrated throughout with Britta’s own sketches & doodles, this one is a limited edition in the current format so don’t miss out!
How to Make a Zine – an introduction for beginners. If you’re tempted to write your own zine but don’t know where to start, this mini zine could be just what you’re looking for! Lots of tips, guidance and inspiration, but the best bit about this mini zine is that it’s double-sided – open it out, and there’s a unique zine theme-picker on the reverse. Twice the fun of an ‘ordinary’ mini zine squished into the same amount of space – genius!
A Collection of Experimental Poetry – This one does exactly what it says on the tin, and is a perfect example of Britta’s quirky nature. These fun little poems are accompanied by original illustrations to make a unique addition to your zine collection.
