Irtoparta Magazine No. 5

Irtoparta no. 5 kansi

Hyena Publishing 2004
63 pages, A5, zine. Sold out.

The cover was a collective effort, though the idea was mine, I think. The best issue of Irtoparta (Detachable Beard), in my opinion. The cover was screen printed by hand, and there are at least seven different colours. The back cover has a numbering, which shows how many copies of each colour were printed. The other texts on the cover were stamped by hand. The zine was finished without a computer, except for rastering a few times.
