After a long half-year or so, Hazel is ready to announce a new issue! This time, the zine edited and produced by Lucy Kagan features several different contributors, so we’re very excited to be able to make the official release before the week is through. In the mean time, we wanted to share with you some things we’ve been enjoying while we were away.
Rifle Paper Company’s fabric line with Cotton & Steel – I’ve always loved Rifle Paper Co., but this print they did for their fabric line is so gorgeous! I really want to make a dress out of it.
These gorgeous vintage books we pinned to our Pinterest board – The inspiration for the new Hazel cover (and all things Hazel, really) came from these beautiful vintage book covers. If I wasn’t dedicated to having some variety on our board, I would pin all the pretty books I could find!
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki – This should have been a recommendation I gave at least a year ago when I read it, but I can’t stop recommending it. If you like magical realism, I would definitely pick up this wonderful and sometimes painful book.
Botanica Tarot Cards by Kevin Jay Stanton – I posted a bit about these a while back, but now that Kevin Jay Stanton has finished the major arcana, I’ve been so excited to get my preordered set in the mail with an enamel pin of The Fool. Floral + magic + enchanting illustration = just exactly my kind of thing.
Cottonbook’s Forager Series of dresses – Did you know that I started a line of clothing this summer? It’s called Cottonbook, and the Forager series is based on a print I created inspired by field guides and sketches of wildlife. The series includes enamel pins and tights, too, and I’m so happy to be able to bring this first collection to life.
