Memorial to a Lost Fruit by Talia Clarick. $8. Digest size, 52 pages, color throughout.
This is a fascinating zine by Clarick, who as far as I know is a first time cartoonist. A memorial to a recently extinct fruit called 'the purple,' Clarick does something quite unique here. We are presented with a history of 'the purple,' made into reality by Clarick's imagery. Clarick's drawing is creative on every page, solving problems and coming up with aesthetically beautiful solutions. A true work of art and worth checking out.
