Dash The Henge x Secret Astronomer
Secret Astronomer is a writing and zine project by American writer and journalist Matia Guardabascio. Named after her childhood desire to be an astronomer and the childlike curiosity and wonder that so often guides her creative work, this project is an open-ended space she created to chart music/art scenes through direct exploration and experimental storytelling.
The first Secret Astronomer zine takes place in London and follows her month-long visit to the UK in October 2022 to explore the South London music scene. During her stay she documented the opening of a new artist-run record shop and performance space called Dash The Henge - @dashthehengestore - located in Camberwell.
Designed as an ode to the 7-inch single release, this first zine is a 7x7 inch publication featuring a series of vignettes and interview segments with Dash The Henge interspersed throughout the story, as well as photographs by London fixture Lou Smith - @lousmithphoto - and the Dublin-based photographer Mark McGuinness - @sparkiemcguinness
The tracklist of chapters is printed on the back cover.
Size: 7" x 7" Pages: 55
