Zines!

We make zines together and apart. On this page you’ll find a list of our zines and a link to our big cartel where you can buy them. You can find more of Lili’s zines here.

We also currently have a patreon page, where for only £2 a month, patrons can get quarterly zines, as well as other merch (when we make it!) like Abi’s sudocrem print:

We would love to have you sign up, as it allows us to keep making the sort of creative work we love to make and share it with you all!
