Volume 5 of our Paper Maps Zine Series celebrates our favorite motto; Always Go Swimming, Never Grow Up.
In swimming holes across America, we play with childlike wonder and experience the world in the most raw form you can. Pick up this Zine and learn the philosophy behind #AlwaysGoSwimming.
Volume 5 of our quarterly zine is chock-full of JR’s photo spreads, along with Kit’s essays, and hand-drawn cartoons. We believe that beauty is meant to be shared, and wanted this to look beautiful on your coffee table, bookshelf, or, if you’re the rambling kind, on the counter of your campervan.
About Paper Maps Zine
Paper Maps is a quarterly zine that we publish as we travel the open roads of North America. Join us to celebrate radical thoughts on idleness, optimism and freedom, all from the vantage point of seeking our way across the good old USA.
We love you guys!
Thank you so much for supporting our art and for making it possible for us to create. We hope this zine takes you to places you’ve never been before, places filled with wildflowers and bare feet and deep thoughts.
What’s a zine, you ask?
If you’re not yet privy...well, welcome to the zine club. A zine (rhymes with “Keen”) is a self-produced mini-magazine, created by the artist (that’s us!). Zines are often radical in tone, with a belief that DIY culture can change the world. Kit has been a zine-head for many years, and it’s her dream come true to have a small publication of her own, inspired by the road, created on the road!
