Zine Round Up: Violet M

It’s that time again! The New York Art Book Fair is an overwhelmingly exhilarating two-day exhibition of independent zines and art-books to excite and delight print-media lovers from far and wide. Here we select some of our favourite artists who will be displaying their work this weekend. Get ready for NYABF madness!


Now with all this talk about NYABF let’s not forget about Independent Art Book Fair! Today we preview Monday, a short zine that journeys through each day of the week and the different emotions that come with them. Starring a cute sad clown, we track feelings of apathy through the beginning of the week, ending with recovery on SundayMonday is one of three zines from ceramicist, embroiderer, and overall sweetie Violet M to be released at the IABF this weekend. Hand-drawn felt-pen illustrations printed and hand-bound into small little booklets, Monday is the perfect addition to any zine-lover’s library. 

Monday, and Violet’s other releases, will be presented alongside a dream-team feminist collective’s collection of print projects at Jo Rosenthal and Emma Orlow’s table titled Nadine (named after the imaginary friend character from the 90s children’s cartoon, Arthur.) All profits from the table will be donated to Henry Street Settlement: Third Street Women’s residence. Head on over to their table if you are passing through IABF!
