Nebulae Vague, a zine by Christopher Kardambikis
The zine is largely a reproduction of a found book "An Album of Celestial Photographs" published in 1946. Pages and spread have been manipulated and interrupted with meditative drawings by Kardambikis. The book is printed by risograph, except the cover which is done with a mix of risograph and xerox.
