ZINE REVIEW #15 « The Flop Box


Label 228

It seems appropriate that a person or group of people who autograph the names Read, Read More, Read Up, Reader, Read Books, and Booker, among others, would eventually produce a form of printed media. Far from being a textbook or novel, Label 228 is an ambitious, visual collection of esoteric messages, photographs, text-based collages and illustrations. The influence of traditional graphic design and lettering are apparent. Resembling a diary, this zine reflects the mystery behind the author; appealing and still uncertain. “So many words for the sake of words alone.” www.operationmadman.com
