This delightful perzine was made last year at the 24-hour zine challenge in Auckland. It follows Linda in her recent travels to Kyoto; each page offers up some magical moment or observation she has made about the city. Often these are things that might otherwise go unnoticed; Linda retells them with honesty and charm. The official narrative in the zine follows a typewritten account, while a handwritten scrawl accompanying it might contradict or offer a humorous add-on to this story. Nothing but good things to say about this zine, I eagerly await news of Linda’s future zine-making endeavours.
