Celeste Fichter’s submission for the Art Exchange Program 2014 is titled “That’s Entertainment” and consists of a 50 page collection of word play with hilarious compositions. She has made several artist books through Print-On-Demand services like Lulu and Blurb, but due to the cost has been experimenting with completely homemade zines. Using an Epson inkjet printer and an awl (yes, an awl) she hand assembles each issue herself in Brooklyn, New York. She learned how to saddle stitch via YouTube videos and has submitted an application to Printed Matter’s Art Book Fair to be held next year in Los Angeles, so wish her luck.
