Jenny Lin's "The Bathroom Problem"

Jenny Lin recently made a new artist's book called The Bathroom Problem. It's a diorama/tunnel book created for The Pop-Up Museum of Queer History's "Queer Book Dioramas" show, in New York. 

Jenny says, "Peer through the glasses and share a first-person vantage point in my reading of Jack Halberstam's Female Masculinity. This book, among others that I read when I came out in 2000 / 2001, helped bring the words 'queer,' 'lesbian' and the phrase 'gender deviant' to my awareness in a way that I felt I personally identified with. I wonder how many others might have recognized themselves for the first time while reading this book."

Tunnel book: inkjet print on paper, bookboard. Edition of 30 books.

Newish titles: The Brazil Series

This post is long overdue! During the summer, Eloisa Aquino was busy writing and drawing three new zines for the Vancouver show "Queering the International."

The zines all are about a queer Brazilian topic.

Madame Sat√£ tells the story of the legendary hustler and performer of Rio de Janeiro in the 1930s and 1940s.

Pajub√° talks about the secret language of Brazilian transgender folk travestis.

Brazilian Singers (from the series The Life & Times of Butch Dykes) humorously introduces several queer Brazilian musicians.

All the zines are now available in B&D's Etsy bookstore and soon in the bookstores that carry our stuff.


Jenny Lin's new zine project and the first issue, One Evening

Jenny Lin has a new project for a series of zines and it is awesome. In the first zine, One Evening, Lin illustrates a kinky story in watercolour. The book is already out and we had it at Queer Between the Covers, Montreal queer book fair.

Here's the artist's description:

While a group of young women commiserate and decompress after a midterm art school critique, they share an erotic queer bondage fantasy about their art teacher. This book is the first in a series in-progress of illustrated and interpreted queer sexual fantasies. I invite acquaintances to share their specific and personal sexual fantasies with me (in verbal or written form) and provide them with the service of transforming the fantasies into graphic book form. To participate, you must identify as queer! If you would like me to draw your queer sexual fantasy, please contact me:


One Evening - Mini
20 laser-printed pages
3 x 3 inches

You can buy it on Etsy.  

There's also a bigger, fancier, hand-printed version:

One Evening
20 screen-printed pages
Hand bound
5½ X 5½ inches
Numbered and signed edition of 30.

One Evening was very popular during the queer book fair and we'll be happy to show both versions at the New York Art Book Fair.
