Zine watch: Yo!ville

Another great zine curated by the Good Press Gallery- this time Yo!ville by Yo!fest. It has a quirky little concept:

Yo!Ville is a town in South Bygone. It had a population of 100 at the last great census. The town has an Ivory Tower, a skate shop, and a Turkish restaurant / hairdresser's." This book documents Yo!Ville and its inhabitants from 2007-2008.

Some fantastic patterns and illustration here, both hand-drawn and digital. As you can see from the photos, the most outstanding feature of Yo!ville is the use of colour: it's bold and there's a lot of it, but it never feels random or clashing somehow.

There's also a detachable mini-zine in the middle, where the story continues. Loved this.
