Inspired by the recalling of the tiny loves, dreams and fancies that comfort and console the mind, Arabesque is an aesthetic zine aimed at all things beautiful and refined as based on the Japanese concept of otome, or maiden.
Highlights from the newest issue include an article on Weimar era films, a fashion guide for train travel, adaptations of familiar folk tales like the Red Shoes, and comics and illustrations from creators like Jordyn Bochon, Colleen MacIssac, Kris Mukai, and Angie Wang. From the city and film to traditions and folktales, this issue traverses across space, time, and memory.
