Hi, I’m Andromache (she/her, they/them) and I make perzines and how-to zines. My perzine series, i eat shapes, deals with issues of mental health, identity, culture shock, and creating your own magical landscapes to survive precarity. I reclaim archival material from the public domain and use the visual language of online fan cultures and magic realism in my works. I’m a writer, so expect short stories and poetry, too. My how-to zines are: “Power to your Voice, a Perzine Manifesto & Prompts” and “Analog Glitches: How to Turn Your Printer Into a Glitch-Machine” with more to come. I run Zines Run the World which is a nomadic zine library, workshop series, and zine swapping platform.
