New Additions to the Reading Room

First up:
God Mad, Good Grub
by Daniel Penn (dansgoodgrub.blogspot.com)
Not only does Dan’s publication include numerous tasty recipes, but it also comes with it’s very own soundtrack to give readers (and listeners) a taste of the experience Dan had as a Canadian cooking in Copenhagen.
Along with the recipes, there are photographs of the food – showing just how delicious everything looks. The fact that each recipe has been hand written speaks to the hands on process of cooking and really works with the aesthetic of the book.
One of the recipes that looked especially appealing was the Pinwheel Cookies.
Here’s a look at the recipe:



 

 

 

 

 

 

Next up:
Anne Emberline’s Pinch: a tiny zine of tiny stories
This publication packs quite the punch for such a little zine. As the title states, it includes five short stories that Anne has written. Each story is different from the previous and each deal with different characters and scenarios. The content is mainly written, with small illustrations scattered throughout its 14 pages.
Here’s a look at the cover image:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Third in line is:
Portrait Service Presents: Kevin Pan
by Jimmy Liang and Dominic Giasson-Garcia
This specific zine is just one of the zines from their on-going series. Each Portrait Service presents someone new to the readers; this issue features Kevin Pan.
The zine contains stats and facts on Kevin as well as questions and answers about his personal interests. Each issue of this series is always comical and sometimes pokes fun at the featured someone.
The guys’ Portrait Services provide a fun way to get to know people I may or may not have already met.
Take a look at Kevin Pan’s Portrait Service:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last, but not at all least:
Christie Lim’s wallet book titled F.S.
This is one of my favourite books. Christie has hand made a wallet along with all of it’s contents, to create a one of a kind work of art. Each item within the wallet has been hand printed to look almost exactly like the original item.
The wallet includes:
– bus pass
– library card
– classy cats membership card
– doodles on scrap paper
– photos of “Boo” the cat
– hair sample from Boo’s first trim
– to-do lists
– coupons
– a recipe card
– fortune cookie paper
– pouch of carrot seeds
– letter to mom
– appointment card
– library receipt
– used bingo sheet
– explanation card
Come check out Christie’s book in the Reading Room to closely inspect each and every awesome part.
