Zine of the Month: Fur, Hide and Bone

This month’s zine is Fur, Hide and Bone by Erika Harada with featured contributors from the Tumblr community of the same name.  I’m intrigued by taxidermy and bones as much as I am the collectors of it, although I myself do not collect. This zine was a great way to learn about each contributor’s treasured piece and about why they collect or what they enjoy most about it. The personal stories behind how they obtained or found the pieces was very interesting. I find skulls particularly fascinating and this zine did not disappoint. The artwork throughout was really nice and it was all put together nicely. It’s really a zine about collecting and I really enjoyed that aspect. Sadly this zine sold out this summer but you can check out the posting for it, here in case it gets reprint in the future and below I have a sampe of it. I also thought I’d show my singular skull that I found two summers ago on a road trip to Ontario. The bird skull was just lying on the beach already down to the bone, a lonely beautiful object in a pretty desperate polluted beach. I picked it up and took it home and cleaned it up carefully, without really knowing why.
