MANUAL


RV.PAPERS #06: MANUAL

Printed in a limited numbered edition of 100, an artzine curated for RV.PAPERS with the artist Bubi Canal.

MANUAL is a guide book, a feedback loop of enigmatic images and messages that unlock the hidden powers that connect us. Bubi Canal wants us to discover the magic that dwells within, and MANUAL is a talisman published in zine form. It is intimate but universal, alien yet familiar.

MANUAL will be featured at the NY Art Book Fair, September 20–22, 2013, in conjunction with MAD-LIB[rary] Vol. 4.

Update: In video.

Update: Available at bookdummypress and Printed Matter. In Madrid: at La Fábrica and Galería Alegría.
