The 'Sad Girls Issue 1' magazine has made its official launch on Etsy. The short, pink paper-bound edition has been made on behalf of eight distinctive women, all of whom have brought their emotions and moving life experiences to the literary table.
The Sad Girls website describes the 'zine' as coming from "girls who make things and have lots of feelings." This short explanation leads into the artistic pages, featuring water color illustrations of the writers on recycled sheets of matte paper.
This grassroots project by curators Tuesday Bassen, Delaney Gonzales, Leah Goren, Grace Lee and more brings up controversial and philosophic topics. Quotes from Sartre are interspersed with meditations on heartache, producing an intelligent and passionate publication.
