Phlegm — Illuminated Alphabet Zine

PhlegmRegular readers of Hookedblog will know about our passion for fanzines and artist produced books, so you can imagine our excitement when the post arrived today with delivery of Sheffield based artist Phlegms newest production. The artists latest zine titled 'Illuminated Alphabet Zine' is a postcard sized book of illustrated type. Phlegm has handmade, illustrated and screen printed the entire thing himself, 28 pages in various shades of blue, on lovely recycled and unbleached paper. The cover features an elaborate four colour screenprinted design(pictured above) with the added bonus of some silver foil embossed letters on both the front and back cover.

The zine has been beautifully produced and printed by the artist and you can see the love that has gone into making this new book. We were equally impressed with the artists previous efforts but this latest book has really impressed us and has certainly raised the bar. We can't wait to see where the artist goes with his next zine. Below are a couple of photos from the zine.
