Part appropriation, part occult study, this zine exists at the intersection of the analog and spiritual. Crafted with a combination of “cut and paste” and digital layout, "Mystic Paper" is a collage based zine that references western history, comic books, pop art, magic and manifestation. Printed in an edition that mirrors the structure of a tarot deck, ( 56 minor cards, 22 major cards, 78 total ) this zine is printed on different paper colors to reference each suit of cards, and is augmented with special inserts, additions and suppliments.
