Trinie Dalton, ed.

You may befamiliar with Trinie Dalton through her prolific writing and of course her zines, which we've sold at the store over the past five years. Packaged in a fancy clothbound hardcover with full-color obi sleeve, her newest book compiles the greatest hits from previous zines, as well as a new, 100-page piece on the subject of mirrors—as symbols in horror stories, psychological metaphors, as material for psychedelic art and the disco ball. In her words, "my zines are literary/art/music history anthologies, following the group-show or salon style. They're like parties on paper, and I want to be an exquisite host." Dalton's "parties on paper" bring together artists, musicians, critics, novelists, cartoonists and other less-classifiable cultural producers.
