Lena Lepidoptera: A Lena Platonos Fanzine – Second Edition
Updated, expanded, and improved second edition! If you are a shop interested in distribution, please get in touch for wholesale prices.
A fanzine inspired by Greek synth musician-poet-goddess Lena Platonos and her 1986 album "Lepidoptera," reissued in 2018 on Dark Entries Records (www.darkentriesrecords.com). Incorporates fragments of her lyrics/poetry and music video stills in dark and dreamy collages about the struggle of coming to terms with a morphing identity, and finding peace, power and transcendence through transformation.
Risoprinted in playful Fluorescent Pink and moody Federal Blue. Bilingual design in Greek and English. Includes a separate A6 art postcard insert with mysterious butterfly runes connected to the zine.
15% of proceeds from this zine will be donated to the Global Fund for Women (www.globalfundforwomen.org).
This project would not have been possible without Josh Cheon for reissuing her music to a wider audience, Stathis Gourgouris for his translation help, Drucken3000 (www.drucken3000.de) for grade A+++ risoprinting services, and Lena Platonos for sharing her remarkable universe.
