Manifest This!

Part artist book, part chapbook, MANIFEST (zine) is the creation of writer / poet / artist Jen Payne. Consider it a hold-in-your-hands art installation featuring Jen’s writing and mixed-media collage work, along with photography, quotes, and bits and pieces of whatnot that rise to the surface as she meditates on a theme.

Layered with colors, textures, and meanings, each issue is handmade then color-copied, embellished, and intricately folded. The result is a thought-full, tactile journey with nooks and crannies for you to discover along the way.

Issue #1, DIVINE INTERVENTION asks the reader to consider the catalysts and consequences of Change: What are the forces that move us? Change us? Propel us with such acceleration that we hardly recognize ourselves?

  1. zines remind me of my teenage years trying to find someone with access to a photocopier, who would run off 100 pages secretly and for free so we could make a zine to sell to our friends. I had no idea that they were back and so big. I will have to investigate further…

    1. I used to sneak computer time at my day job so I could design my first zine. I think they even let me make copies. I feel like everything I’ve done since then has been so serious…this one, not so much. Yes, yes, go investigate and have fun! : )
