Annapurna zine for Nepal

Nepal, Zines September 6, 2015

‘Annapurna’ is a zine with photographs Rebecca Rijsdijk shot during a hike in Nepal. She is also a massif in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal that includes one peak over 8,000 metres, thirteen peaks over 7,000 metres, and sixteen more over 6,000 metres. Quite an impressive lady to look up to from your shelter in the mountains at six in the morning.

When news of the devastating earthquakes reached our ears we couldn’t believe what images we saw on the television; people stuck under the rubble of what once was their home, their shop or their school; collapsed (historical) buildings. The earthquake affects eight million people in Nepal, this is more than a quarter of the total population. When we heard about the death toll and the amount of people wounded or otherwise affected, we got on the phone with our friends in Kathmandu straight away with only two questions burning on our lips; ‘are you safe?’ and ‘what can we do to help?’

While saving up to go to Nepal with photographer Roberto Rubalcava to film a documentary, we created a zine of which the profit will go towards a fundraising campaign we will launch in December.
This publication wouldn’t have been possible without our printbuddies over at ‘De Resolutie’ in Rijwijk, who kindly donated the print costs so that all the profit we make on this booklet will go straight to the fundraising campaign. We also want to thank Otto Schut for letting us print the sketches he made during a trip to Nepal 30 odd years before we met him on the trail to Poon Hill.

‘Annapurna’ is available for preorder in our shop now and you would do the people of Kharipati a massive favour if you chucked it in your cart. We will ship mid September.
