okay by laura mckellar

thank you for finding okay!

okay is made with a lot of love + patience

here is some info about okay:

okay is limited in numbers.
each page is printed on a different stock giving each page its own individuality, texture and aethetic.
it is made of only images,
the only text is page one which explains the theme of the issue,
about 50% of the pictures are original and the rest are found
the papers printed on include: card, wallpaper, textured art paper, photo paper, trace paper, foiled paper, etc.
okay loves typewriting on stickers which sometimes feature on certain pages
okay comes in a calico pouch, with its own individual number

issue one: memories.
issue two: identity.
**issue three: summer
dear summer, you are more than just a season. you are the colour of my dreams, the orange in our salad sandwich, the rambutan on the side of the road. you are the view of the sea from my train window, waiting for him to leave so the return is sooner. a photo from the cheap disposable camera, and a road trip listening to phoenix, and ice cream on st kilda pier. with love, x.

okay loves receiving love letters + making new friends, feel free to add okay to your myspace or blog or send a little letter to okay!

p.s. it may look like i have a huge budget with all these colours + papers!!! but i make do with what i can and love finding papers to print on. colour is a very important element to okay.

oh, no, that's okay! I've been slow on things too, it's not emailing me comments anymore... anyway! don't worry about it at all. I figured you were one of the people that has a profile here but hangs around etsy more :) I was just about to see if I could scrounge up some money to buy one of yours!

yours are so lovely and you sell for a lot more than me, so how about I just send you a package of zines? :) I'll definitely include the kitten one. eek, I'm so excited, I've been lurking your zines like crazy, they're so lovely and inspiring.

anyway, I will message you my address!

You're welcome! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I'd love that. Don't go too far now, let me know what newbies you've got and we'll do another swap!

WOW! I got yer zine and it it such a little treasure! Can't wait to pack up your goodies. You will get them sent in about a week when I pull myself together and stop falling asleep so damn early.

Thanks again!

That's alright, I will send you mine in about a week and let you know we're swapping just to remind you.Sure can, what else did you want? That way it'll make up for the $10 (or close to).

Looking forward to having a squizz, it looks lovely!

Thank you.

Hello friend of Sticky. If you have made a zine recently, are still reprinting old copies of a zine, have old copies lying around or are thinking of making zine, we want you to stock it with us! If you haven't stocked with us before, here's how you do it. Visit our website (www.stickyinstitute.com) and download a stockists form. Fill it out and send it with up to ten copies of your zine to Sticky, P.O. Box 310, Flinders Lane, VIC 8009. We have them on the shelves for 6 months at which time, if they've sold out we'll pay you and if they haven't totally sold out we'll pay you for the copies you have sold and send the remaining copies back to you or donate them to the Exchange Box. To those of you have stocked with us previously, keep sending us your zines! Zine culture is alive and kicking in Australia and Sticky is an ardent defender of zine culture!
Love from Sticky!
