Yes

Yes

I looked at this zine over and over again, trying to figure out if there was a narrative. Was I supposed to understand a story that connected the images? Was Koch trying to communicate something to the reader that I just wasn’t getting?

I don’t know. The same people show up in different images. The same things (hats, eyes, houses) show up repeatedly, but maybe these are just things that Koch likes to draw.

Do two lonely people meet and become united in their love for hats with eyes on them and plant life? I think so. Maybe. And even if that’s not what’s going on the artwork, sewn spine, and awesome cover make for an attractive package.
