New Zine Alert: Volume 1 of ALL MY IDOLS From New Indie Publisher UNION PRESS This Saturday

By Jul 30, 2020 Arts & Stage
Hey arty people. New zine launch, if you're touch-starved for physical media. PLUSMINUS — a small ad/design company slash creative collective — has launched its own publishing label called UNION PRESS. The first edition, titled ALL MY IDOLS, is launching this weekend. Limited run of 600 copies, 80 pages collecting the works of 30 Shanghai-based artists, photographers, designers, cartoonist and general creative types. "Stuff that we like from the people that we rate," says editor-in-chief Maurice.

The plan is to release these annually (or biannually, if they can manage it), on top of their other projects, like a graphic novel based on Chinese folklore planned for later this year, and their ongoing Cosmonaut series. There's a launch event for Vol I on Saturday, August 1, if you want to check out the work. We've got some of it after the jump.

Here's the line-up of the contributors, rendered in their natural form: line art (mostly).

The launch event on Saturday is RSVP only and there are only 50 tickets available to the public. You can get one by writing to their WeChat or you can send an email to First come first serve, free drinks, DJs, etc. Party kicks off 2pm.


Art.333 @ Bund is located at 26/F, 333 Nan Suzhou Lu, near Henan Zhong Lu / 南苏州路333号26楼, 近河南中路. The exhibition is open to the public from August 3-8, daily 1-5pm. The zine costs 200rmb, or 170rmb if you preorder on their WeChat before Saturday.
