Kristin George Bagdanov
Indicator Species is a zine by Kristin George Bagdanov that explores how we see ourselves through nature and environmental hierarchies.
zine is made from a single sheet of paper and folded as a 1/8 page zine. It was folded by hand by Kristin George Bagdanov, a zinester, poet, and environmental researcher. She is the author of a poetry collection, Fossils in the Making.
What the heck are zines?
Zines are self-made books that come in all shapes and sizes, made by people all over the world. Many zines offer healing through poetry, the sharing of personal stories, and even self-help tips. They're ephemeral, and fleeting, yes. They have copy marks and dog-ears, sometimes. But those analog imperfections are part of what we love about them.
