The Blackbird Chronicles Vol. 1

40.00

The Blackbird Chronicle Vol. 1 is a 12-page accordion zine of water-colored illustrations based on Appalachian folklore and ballads, from the traditional ballad “Down by the Greenwood Side/The Cruel Mother”, to Edn Hammons’ “Queen of the Earth, Child of the Skies”. Elements of West Virginia can be found everywhere, from the red spruce to the possums and the catfish, and of course, the inimitable, reigning mountain woman.

Each book is a little bit different, with interactive elements, such as the diving queen, and the falling stars, as well as a surprise envelope in the front pocket of each one. These zines are in no way meant to be perfect, but each one has been carefully hand-made and unique.

dimensions are roughly 6x5” , printed on French’s Paper which is made in the U.S.A., assembled right here in West Virginia.
