Belfast-based photographer Billy Woods caught our eye through his self-published zines capturing the faces of Belfast DIY music venues. With the same energy behind the camera, Billy found himself in Reykjavik, Iceland, where he came to learn through conversations with locals, of genetic ties between Irish and Icelandic people. From behind the camera, this trip saw Billy documenting the architecture, landscapes, and people of Reykjavik, delving in to their city and gaining an understanding of the ways that these two cultures have been interwoven, be it through shared DNA or shared experiences of the harsh economic struggles. The resulting zine, ‘Papar’ is a beautifully crafted and considered photo book that we were delighted to have produced.

Ross Carvill’s illustrations possess an energy and personality that stands out amongst the best of them. In April of 2020, we invited Ross to do some live drawing on our instagram, where Ross drew creations that merged animals and objects based on viewers’ suggestions, and we loved them so much that we thought they needed to be printed! “Mystical Magical Maths” collects some of our favourites, in this zine that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
