Exclusive to Milly Sleeping

Head to Milly Sleeping, Carlton, to find our newest zine, It was a familiar pattern.

A little mesmerising flipbook, based on a moving collage of the same name. Let the pages flutter with pace and watch an unexpected assembly surface from the sea (and retreat again) afront a passing ship.

Created for (and currently exclusive to) Milly Sleeping.

Printed in Melbourne; assembled and editioned by hand by Gracia Haby & Louise Jennison AKA Gracia & Louise.

PS. This work also relates to an exhibition called Looped, now showing in the Latrobe Reading Room at the State Library of Victoria.

Milly Sleeping: Quick Interview with Gracia Haby of Gracia & Louise
Our final interview for the holiday period evolved into a 'true or false' quiz for Melbourne-based artists Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, AKA Gracia & Louise. Together and independently (but most often together, and most often with a four-legged friend or two), G + L are very prolific makers, doers, dreamers — delightful to follow on the gram. Kind thanks to Gracia for taking the time to write, and to both she and Louise — for always being willing partners to our projects and flights of fancy.
