Zine Review #4

Vag Mage Stoned Babes

I encountered this little gem digging through piles of zines at a friend’s house. To be honest, I know nothing about the artists involved. I do know that out of a pile of 50 zines this one jumped out, screaming to be held and fondled. Its binding was so slick and its overall presentation was very inviting. Even after opening it over and over again, I still don’t have a grasp on exactly what these artists are trying to convey. Maybe it’s nothing more than a collection of photos, drawings, collages, and writing. Sometimes a concept can go right over your head. I’m fine in not knowing. I do know that this zine is very aesthetically appealing. There’s an interesting group of people putting out this kind of work. www.thereisawe.com
