Spudnik Press Cooperative is pleased to announce the completion of a new invitational project with Latham Zearfoss. The broadside, Many Happy Returns, addresses the interdependence of consumption and production.
Each print is dyed with a natural pigment on the left side, corresponding to a list of things that can be composted. The right side of each print is dyed with a synthetic dye, and corresponds to materials that are not typically composable. The text doubles as both a functional resource list and a meditative poem.
Latham began this project with Spudnik Press Cooperative by creating a collection of paper pots from recycled paper pulp and natural pigments. These pots were used to hold sunflower seedlings and intended to be planted in the ground as part of a virtual installation debuted during EXPO CHGO ONLINE in April 2021.
This initial publishing project of 2021 offers an affordable and utilitarian option for supporters to begin or add to their art collection.
Many Happy Returns is available now and all proceeds support Spudnik Press Cooperative programs. Any inquiries can be directed to Angee Lennard at email@example.com.
