Hooray for creative people: writers, journalists, designers, photographers; who take the initiative to showcase their creative work on their own terms. Journalist Brittney Kleyn, for example, garnered her creative friends and produced a zine from her holidays in Europe. Called Around the World in 80 Pages, it's a celebration of travel, discovery, journey and destination.
It's not a travel guide, but it does document the weird, wacky and wonderful discoveries made by Brittney and her friends. Think designers in London, librarians in Berlin, and baristas in Spain. Right up my alley!
I can't wait to read this zine but, more than that, I applaud what Brittney has to say about taking her burgeoning career into her own hands.
