ROCK AND ROSE by Chloe Maratta
478x309mm, 24 pages Black and white photocopies, Folded, 2012.
“Hard to do justice to this amazing magazine, edited by Chloe Maratta. This feels like everything you always dream a beautiful zine will be when you pick it up---except this one is, in ambition and creativity, deeper than you'd ever imagine on your own. Bursting at the seams with poetry, photo collages, drawings, a 'style reader' and more, there is a lot to take in. More than anything, it's the attitude that hits you: there is a righteous character on display in all the articles, but without even a small dose of saccharine ingredients or naïveté. Instead, there's a wild creativity beating on every page. This zine could be classified as a punk zine or a fashion zine but the sum is much much more complicated and thrilling than the parts. Order this and sit down with it for a month without exhausting its scope.”
