My Porn, Volume 1
zine
2016

A book similar to books I made as a kid. My father only had a few Penthouse magazines hidden away. Without him knowing I would slice a page out every month to make my porn. As his stash grew my father’s thinned. I was afraid of being caught so I burned it. This ritual foreshadows Clary’s practice of collecting, making, and destroying. The book is printed on demand so it can be enjoyed and burned in perpetuity.
