I didn't know I needed

a rope vessel guide

until Ashley Ronning

included one in her mysterious

care package that arrived

back in January.

This is a step-by-step

compendium for crafting

your own container

out of rope.

Risographed (is that a verb?)

in bright blue and soft pinks,

the 20 page zine

is written by Gemma Patford

and drawn "through the eyes

of Ashley Ronning."

With only 100 copies made,

you can grab your own edition

on Ronning's Etsy store

or Patford's exclusive kit.

It comes complete

with pages for personal notes.
