Gypsophila Zine is the brain baby of a graphic designer, poet and artist (hi that's me). I decided at the end of 2020 that I wanted to work in publication and I thought the best way to advance my publication portfolio would be starting my own digital magazine! And so Gypsophila was born, an art and literary magazine focusing on a singular artist in each issue and a singular art style per volume, filled to the brim with poetry, prose and short stories from writers across the world.
Behind the name: “Besides roses, Gypsophila – due to its graceful appearance – is one of the most charismatic plants. Not only does this plant decorate every bouquet in its own special way, it also beautifies every flower bed. On a big scale Gypsophila can grow in bare areas and can be combined with almost every other kind of flower.” (Info from: https://www.plantopedia.com/gypsophila/). Gypsophila complements any flower placed beside it in a bouquet or flowerbed. This magazine will combine art and literature. Visual and verbal art coming together to create something beautiful. Just how baby’s breath (gypsophila) can grow in tandem with almost any other flower.
Currently Gypsophila is moving into Volume 3: Photographers. In total it has eleven issues out already across the first two volumes. You can go to gypsophilazine.com to view or download the issues and can keep up with the magazine on Facebook and Instagram at @gypsophilazine.
