Coco Capitán visits East Village for “Short For Magazine” pop-up


[UPDATE] February 8, 3:55 p.m. EST: An extremely limited number of zines and posters are now available online while supplies last.

To celebrate our Short for magazine In issue 004, we hosted a zine signing in East Village on Friday night with Coco Capitán.

Our Short for magazine is a strictly limited-edition DIY-style publication that highlights the work of some of our favorite photographers, designers, and artists. At each serial number we give a new creative of our choice flames do whatever they want in a 24 page zine.

For those who may not know, Coco is an established photographer and recent Gucci collaborator who has developed an audience for her works exploring simple, humorous typefaces and messages.

for her Abbreviation of Magazine The edition, titled “Freeway to Disappearance & Other Death Related Anxieties”, consists of photographs taken on the artist’s last trip from London to the West Coast and writings from the past two years.

Like previous versions, number 004 will be limited to 100 numbers only. However, unlike previous issues, we celebrated the latest draft with an actual drop in New York City. We hosted a zine signing on Friday at Mast books in East Village, where Coco was on hand to mark all the fans had to offer. From zine shopping on the spot to Gucci sneakers and accessories, if you brought it along, she signed it with her typeface and phrases.

If you weren’t able to attend the event, check out the celebration night in the gallery above.
