"Spell Book for an Attic Gardener" Zine - 2016

I made this zine after graduating, while living in the attic of an old house in Sackville, NB and wondering what to do with my life. I would describe it as being about houseplants, magic, and apartment living. In 2017, it was shortlisted for best zine at the Expozine Awards and won best literary zine at the Broken Pencil Zine Awards. The cover is screen-printed and the pages are drawn in pen and watercolour then digitally printed.
