Nieves, the champion zine and artists’ books publishers based in Zurich, have just released this covetable, limited edition package bringing together all 18 of their inky numbers from the past year.
Nieves zines are outwardly uniform: stapled little books of the same size, same page number, printed on the same paper, usually in black and white. But the contents range wildly. Within the 18 different artists here there’s a great variety – from Emmanuelle Pidoux’s dark watery wastelands to Olaf Breuning’s naughty line doodles, from Jocko Weyland’s eerie photographs to Allison Schulnik’s sculpted and painted “misfits”, the Nieves Zine Box looks like fascinating mixed bag.
