Maps and Fragments at the Brooklyn Zine Fest!

Ta-da! I have exciting news to share with you. I will be launching two brand new limited-edition zines at the Brooklyn Zine Fest this Sunday, April 21st.

“The Way Home” is a photo zine about a year-long journey (of arrivals and departures) featuring expired vintage film and digital photographs from New York and Vietnam. It’s a 22-page full-color zine, beautifully printed on 100lb silk-coated paper.

I have a soft-spot for “Playtime: Sewon’s Korean Kitchen” — a mini recipe zine of my favorite Korean food from childhood with my notes from the kitchen and lovingly photographed homecooked meals. It’s my first cooking zine featuring eight easy recipes I haven’t blogged about, including spicy Korean fried chicken and homemade pepero (Korean pocky).

**I will post more photos and details once the zines officially launch on Sunday. In case you are curious, I’ve put a few copies on my Mini Market as pre-launch specials. If you order before the launch, I’ll include some extra paper goodies!

I am so lucky to be sharing a table with the talented Jannese of Craftylove/UsagiPorMoi, who even sketched out decoration ideas. She has some beautiful new sewing zines as well as handmade photo zines, and we’ll also be hosting Debra’s extra-tiny books at the table. I think we might just have the cutest table at the Zine Fest.

We’ll be at Public Assembly in Williamsburg from 11AM to 6PM. If you are in the city this Sunday, please stop by our table and say hello!

    both of the zines look super lovely, Sewon! i wish we’d have zine fests over here … it would be so so good to spend a sunday looking at such pretty things, and talk to creative people 🙂

    anyhow, a friend of mine just returned from S-Korea and told me she’s so sad about not having taken a cooking class or something, cause she’ll miss the food SO MUCH and feels bad about not knowing how to do it. i guess you think what i think now, 🙂 i’ll go order your zine as soon as i receive my salary. fingers crossed it’s before the weekend!

    Oh that’s great news! Congratulation Sewon! You must have been really busy these past weeks. I’m definitely interested your, ‘the way home” zine. And I’m sure you both will have the cutest table at the festival.
    🙂

    Oh, they look lovely! Unfortunately I won’t make it to Brooklyn as I’m in Germany, haha. Is it possible to order them online?

    You’re moving to Korea soon? I am planning to visit Seoul in June. 😀 I will make sure to see your posts of Korea to see what I can do there for reference. 🙂
