Buried Compendium [zine].
London, UK: Self-published, 2023. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Buried Zine is a demoniacal, cosmic terror, an atrophying shambling mess of paralyzed organs evacuating putridity. Each volume of uncorporeal life is hand bound and lovingly laid out akin to a medieval illuminated text. The compendium is a facsimile reprint of the first six volumes, originally published between 2010 and 2016 all long sold out. The layout and materials of each issue have been carefully recreated for this one-off reprint. The compendium also features a new cover illustration, audio essay and photography through out the book.
