MisMerch’d Vol. 2
by Heather Link Bergman
is PRESS, Denver, Colorado
MisMerch’d Vol. 2 is a 24-page zine printed and bound by hand in Denver, Colorado. The covers are printed on 100# French Madero Beach Speckletone with a letterpress title printed in neon red ink on a Chandler & Price Craftsman press.
MisMerch’d Vol. 2 is a conceptual art project documenting items placed in the wrong place in grocery stores with accompanying meditations on consumption, religion, politics, culture, love, life and death all cleverly disguised as sophomoric haiku. MisMerch’d Volume 2: Get Ready, Company’s Coming, is the long-awaited sequel to Mis’Merch’d Volume 1: The Everyday Value Issue.
MisMerch’d Vol. 2 features juxtapositions observed during one shopping trip on November 27, 2019 – the day before Thanksgiving – inside the Safeway at South Broadway and Alameda Avenue in Denver, Colorado. All vignettes were captured exactly as they were encountered.
MisMerch’d Vol. 2 first printing has a fluorescent red letterpress masthead in an addition of 80 for just $6.99!!!
