Anonymous Engravings on Ecstasy Pills by Frederic Post, published by Boabooks:

“The patterns used in “Anonymous Engravings on Ecstasy Pills” were designed by unknown people who abandoned them. In this book of drawings, Frédéric Post offers a piece of research worthy of a modern-times archaeologist. He collected and re-created these figures, conferring thus value to an underground iconography of over 500 signs.
The classification of the drawings into three groups (figures, typography, symbols) was carried out with Izet Sheshivari.”

SLVT is an “intimate zine created by Meg Forsyth as part of an ongoing project examining the term slut and aims to elevate this derogatory word. Beginning with the label SLVT as a conceptual departure point, each page of drawing and text unfolds a delicate line of thoughts told with a sensitive hand.”
