Mini zine mini review : Ker-bloom
Ker-bloom! is published every two months by artnoose, a non-capitalist, progressive thinking craftsperson from San Francisco. Ker-bloom is very small (about 4 X 5 inches) and 12 pages each issue and made with loving care. Each issue contains a personal essay written by artnoose that relates an event or situation (from epic to banal and everything in between) and how it relates to the bigger picture in our culture. Ker-bloom is letterpress printed in an edition of 250 per issue.
I can't say enough about this zine which is so uniquely a labor of love. Although artnoose's writing sometimes lacks in emotional depth, she makes up for it in passion and spirit. Recent copies are available from www.parcellpress.com
