For the month of June, I'll be donating all proceeds from my shop to the Attawapiskat Community Centre.
Sixth zine in my continuing series about explorations in Canada and northern turtle island. Each zine is printed, hand-bound with linen thread, and hand stamped by me.
Contents include my research and observations, with sections for:
- a personal diary entry of my exploration
- my colour photography photos
- backgrounds for commerce paths/trails
- translucent maps
- a social history and critical reflection
I also include a grid page, for your own mapping explorations.
16 pages, 4 sheets + colour cover and 1 translucent map centrefold (NOTE: This zine is slightly more expensive to account for the cost of the translucent map). Topics for #6: The PATH include:
- background of both the PATH network and the tkaronto Carrying Place
- noticing pathways and the ways in which they shape cities
- the future of mapping history
This zine comes with four alternative covers - however the content within each zine is the same.
I am an anthropologist and media scholar with a bachelors from the University of Toronto. I use my own experience and observations from visiting each place, and I apply ideas and theories from people from all walks of life to consider the history and future of each place I visit. My hope with this ongoing project is to make interesting, easy to read historical accounts of our evolving world through personal experience - and inspire others to consider doing the same.
