THE ART OF BOOKS & SMALL PRINT PUBLICATIONS

This is a blog on artist books, artist notebooks, magazines, poetry editions and other small print publications. Like FRIOUR is the Icelandic word for peace, BOKLIST are the Icelandic words for book (bok) and art (list). This is also a group blog in which those who are invited can upload their own books and/or comments.

Pages: 56

Cartoon page on the "future of labour"

1. Old women will carry young men on their heads.

2. Sadness increases your value by 10 %

3. Security cameras will be replaced by unemployed with 5 eyes

4. Children will get horns in factories

5. In experimental labs people will be crossed with balloons

6. Vampires will be retrained as pediatricians.

One of my collages published in the zine, surrounded by the sentence:

"For women having children is a labor of love, while men exploit the same children in certain Latin American mines" (GV)

Back cover of this issue of the magazine.
