Featured Zine #1: Julie Barratt

As usual as one event happens, I have to hit the ground running to catch up to the next mission here at the Lounge.

However as the Zine Fair was such a great event – and it was a lot of work for just a day (a very worthwhile, intense day!) for all the participants involved, I thought it might be cool to post everyones zines on the blog so those who didn’t have a chance to check out the zines on our table get a chance to peruse them online!

First up is a little video I made on Vine of the zine made by Julie Barratt. Titled ‘loss’, a b/w photocopied A5 zine, picked up and flicked through casually soon reveals a poignant narrative…

{the loss of memory}

enjoy this beautiful work, and check back soon for the next featured zine!

“This one word volume ‘Loss’ was inspired by current life events. The fragility of life/health was brought home to me recently when someone close to me ( and otherwise quite healthy) was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma. I didn’t even know what that was! With a poor prognosis, the only really certainty the continuing loss of memory and with conversational words disappearing almost on a daily basis I was compelled to articulate how that must look to the people who are closest to the person affected.” – Julie Barratt
