Like previous releases, this will be limited to just 100 issues, but this time we are including an equally limited poster, which is also available for purchase.
The title of Capitán’s zine is Freeway to Disappearance & Other Death Related Anxieties, and consists of photographs taken during the London-based artist’s last trip to the West Coast, and writings from the past two years.
Exploring existential crises and contemplations of life and death, the images and accompanying typeface art bring to mind notions of loneliness, isolation and quiet introspection.
Though the tone is darker than her more optimistic works for Gucci’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection, there is still plenty of Capitán’s trademark wit present. In examining the line between life and death, she also adds humorous aphorisms about Millennial histrionics—whether it’s wishing someone would call you back to being too “busy” to enjoy life itself. But most of all, what the zine serves as is a true reminder that the journey truly is as important as the destination.
