Days of Zorn: a Fanzine Dedicated to the music of John Zorn (zine-book) FLAKE
Wonderfully crafted zine dedicated to the music of avant-garde maestro John Zorn by Australian German-baed author FLAKE. Filled with pics and overview of Zorn's magnificent ouvre.
Extremely limited copies with the second print from the publisher already sold out. Comes with OBi strip and super purple foil sleeve.
“Beautiful… eloquent… creative… deeply moving and inspiring … warm regards and appreciation unto thee.” - John Zorn
'My copy of the Fladik-fanzine arrived today! What a gorgeous package she has put together! And not to brag, but my humble Masada World site gets QR coded on the ALEF review.
The remark-able (strange? visionary?) thing here is her use of the print format. Print media is *notoriously* unforgiving - almost as much as sculpture. There is *tremendous* pressure to check, proofread, field test, etc before actually going to press. Digital media, not so much. If you make an error (or even end up being flagrantly wrong), you can go back and fix it and it stands corrected from that point forward.
What Sarah (aka FLAKE) has done here is print a series of reviews written when she was 1) ignorant of Zorn's music, 2) seemingly allergic to research, and 3) prone to negativity to provide variety - and then provides two additional levels of self-correction. Most folks would go back and re-edit their initial drafts so that only the most accurate and articulate version of the story is committed to print. Flake takes us on her journey from petulant Zorn newbie to apologetic cult Zorn fan - some forty times over.
And all - again - in a just gorgeous piece of print. Nice work there!'
