last weekend i had a few girls over for an al fresco evening of fish tacos (say that three times fast!) and the lovely jen gotch asked what she could bring. since i told her i had it covered, she ever-so-kindly brought me this fabulous hostess gift. before coming over she’d been at Printed Matter’s Los Angeles Art Book Fair and upon seeing this very cool box of books, she quite rightly thought i might like them. well, i indeed love them and when i instagrammed them and many of you seemed really interested in knowing more about them and where one might get one’s paws on these fine zines. well, they were created by Los Angeles/Berkeley-based collective publishing press tiny splendor and curator darin klein and friends in collaboration with twenty different and very talented artists, with 2-color screenprint on pink pastry boxes by Kenneth Srivijittakar. darnit — the boxes are sold out online, but the zines included in this beauty of box are so inspiring and colorful i thought you might like a glimpse and to check out more from these fine artists and publishers — you can find more handmade artist books for sale in a similar vein through tiny splendor.
