Throughout the holiday season, we are celebrating all things home, whether that be a cozy living room or a long-held family tradition. Home can mean many things to different people, so we asked a series of our favorite artists to tell us what it means to them, in the form of a free, printable zine. Our hope is that this series will bring you some inspiration and delight through this cozy season and help you to find your own meaning for home. The first installment is an ode to some of our favorite things (plants and pots!) courtesy of Edinburgh-based artist Marcus Oakley. Known for his simplified forms and nostalgic style, this tiny booklet is sure to put a smile on your face! Download the PDF here and follow the directions below to assemble your zine!
