gaylord phoenix issue # 4 by edie fake
Some zines are strange, wordless affairs. I love Gaylord Phoenix because it tells a strange fairytale that goes beyond a fairytale and into the weird areas of our mind where structured thought fails us.
Beginning with a beautiful silkscreened cover. Sometimes as a publisher you want to go all out with a cover, but a little restraint is often in order.
Where is his other? What is an other? Whoa!
Wizards, trees and scandinavian (?) elf men!
Uh oh, what’s going on here!?
There’s a space between comics and books, a world of picture + words inhabited maybe only by Children’s books and more serious photography coffeetable books. I’d like to see more weird stuff like Gaylord Phoenix explore that space. Make it cozy for us!
You can of course read this zine by visiting Rock Paper Scissors or contacting Edie Fake yourself.
