Zine Review: The Itinerant Postcard

The Itinerant Postcard
24 pages / quarter letter / $2 or trade
Chrysothème A.
5011 Rolling Meadows Road
Rolling Hills Estates CA 90275

Edward Gorey aficionados will be thrilled with this new zine that draws upon illustrations by (and somehow, instills the spirit of) Edward Gorey, reclusive & renowned writer / artist / cat lover / ballet patron. I was intrigued by the introduction and never looked back. Chrysothème writes in a literate, incisive style & weaves poetry and prose that touches upon the musings of ballerinas, cultural appropriation, cultural icon Marchessa Luisa Casati, personal journal entries and more. If we are fortunate, there will be more zines from Chrysothème forthcoming.
