Holle Weg – a collection of vertically oriented comics compiled and published by Cybele Collins. Lots of Providence contributors and a really nice piece of text by Collins that articulates what is so special about the tradition of self publishing in that city. More images after the break.

Read More Books, Reader, Book Man – whatever you call him – he is one of the (very) few non-conventional graffiti writers (“street artist”? – ugh, can’t believe I wrote that) making work that I really, really get excited about these days. Not for any big, intellectual reasons or out of a deep love of the style or message – but more for the fact that he is EVERYWHERE – “All Country”. I have always been really attracted to that traveling / creating lifestyle (even if I am basically a homebody) and this guy’s work sort of represents that to me. So I ordered this ‘zine from Operation Madman. It is a really amazing travel document / collage ‘zine / flick collection. It is filled with the type of stuff I used to get so excited about looking through old graffiti ‘zines / Barry McGee books / Stuck On The Map a long time ago. Get a copy! It has a great photo of a hand-painted-hoagie included as well.
