The Mark E Smith Pocket Zine of Wisdom
My book of the year is Mark E Smith's 'Renegade'. I found it both totally inspiring and utterly hilarious in equal measure. I recently re-read it and afterwards wanted to find a way to remember some of the things he says, such as
'In my book, the more you want to make of your life, then the more you fucking do. I wonder sometimes when I look at bands what their brains must be like. Thomas Carlyle, the Scottish writer said, 'Produce, produce - it's the only thing you're there for'.
I love Mark E Smith's uncompromising attitude to his work, his utter disregard for anyone else's opinion and his drive. He is the main man.
So I made this zine about him. Printed in full colour, 10.5cm x 7.5cm this mini zine
is packed with pearls of insight from the sagacious MES, comes in its own resealable bag, and will not fail to raise a smile.
