Portrait Diaries Issue 1 and each other Zine is handprinted and handbound with lots of love and dedication to deliver the best product possible for you.

A journey through manhood

In Issue 1, Andre takes us on a journey through manhood and what it’s like to grow from a boy to a man. Foggy fields and a cold lake give a mystical setting which reflects the mood of the protagonist. Wandering a road, not yet passed. Not sure of what’s ahead but curios about where it leads and how it will affect the own personality.
