Gubbish

[a portmanteau of ‘garbage’ and ‘rubbish’; may have originated with SF author Philip K. Dick] Garbage; crap; nonsense. “What is all this gubbish?” The opposite portmanteau ‘rubbage’ is also reported; in fact, it was British slang during the 19th century and appears in Dickens.

Some zines and books from Safari Festival.

Today I arrived early for the Breakdown Press ‘Safari Festival’. It was a really nice space and the work on show from some of the UK alternative press scene was truly amazing.

Got to meet Zoe Taylor and Connor Willumsen at the Breakdown table. Both of these artists are producing some really beautiful work. Picked up various zines and ‘The girl who fell to earth’ from Zoe and ‘Treasure Island 2’ from Connor. Connor had come over especially for the event. Really nice to meet, and speak to both of them about their work.

The night before Antoine Cosse and Lando’s Breakdown books launched at Gosh. Original art from the books was on display. Seeing Antoine’s work up close shows how detailed he works at such a small size!

Also picked up work from Antoine Cosse, Leon Sadler, Laura Callaghan, Joseph P Kelly, Eleni Kalorkoti, Joe Kessler and Lando.

I wish Tom, Simon and all at Breakdown Press every success and look forward to seeing what the future holds.

And speaking of the cover artwork for A Deitch Miscellany, here it is! There’s still a mountain of work to be done on these, but we’re making progress. On a design note, the outside is deliberately understated in order to contrast with the absolute explosion of color when you open the book.

Jordan at Chance Press puts together some amazing work. Check it out!
