Airborne by Antonis Sideras & Erik Papis
The coronavirus reached the United Kingdom in early 2020. It wasn’t until 23 March 2020 that the government imposed a lockdown, urging people to stay at home. The damage was already done. In the face of this crisis, artists Antonis Sideras and Erik Papis joined forces to respond creatively to the events leading up to the British lockdown and its subsequent effect on every aspect of life. The two artists created a collection of original writings and artworks respectively, which narrate their experiences whilst in lockdown. This publication serves as a record of their outlook on the coronavirus pandemic, which attempts to show how the creative collaboration between Antonis and Erik, empowered the two artists during these unprecedented times. 24 print pages / full colour / A5 (5.8” x 8.3”) / saddle stitched
Mortician's Pride by Antonis Sideras
“If you were to ask a mortician what they value the most, what would they say? I imagine it would be the mortality of human kind.” This collection of writings and images captures the queer little ways our mortality influences our thinking, our life experiences and the way we look at our time in this world. First edition of 50 copies / 28 print pages / full colour / A5 (5.8” x 8.3”) / saddle stitched

an abbreviated spectacle by Leanne Staples
The mind is a curious arena of interpretations and miscommunications. What takes place in the outer world and the inner world don’t always agree. Sometimes the imagination is more interesting, though not necessarily less truthful. This is a digital zine with a series of 15 painterly images and a corresponding written piece.
comme d'habitude by Leanne Staples
comme d'habitude ("as usual") is about the relationship of two people thinking in unison in a world in which they are seen as outsiders. It imagines a carefree existence whether in this world or in another, in which we can still dream and in which we have the ability to fully live outwardly who we are and without judgement. This is a first edition of 50 copies. There are 7 photomontage reproductions and an accompanying written piece. It is a 24 page, saddle-stitched publication and it measures 5.8" x 8.26"
