In ‘Root’, you will find knitted boyfriends, flooded apartments and regret-filled werewolves. You will find work that integrates pain surveys, work that mimics online bakery reviews and work that references Sarah Ahmed and Stardew Valley in the space of a single page. You will find a stunning cover by the painter Clare Wigney, which blends digital bitmap style imagery with imperfect brushstrokes. You will find intimate illustrations by Joyce Cheng, who captures not only the imagery, but somehow the physical texture of each piece she worked on.
This feast is all tied together by the amazing work of our designer, Selena Repanis.
