Alex Hahn's zine makes competition shortlist!

Great news: SPACE RACE (Three Zines by Alex Hahn) has made the shortlist for the World Illustration Awards!

SPACE RACE is a set of three handmade zines, each folded in a distinct way from a single A3 sheet of coloured paper. Only 120 of these sets have been made, and creator, Alex Hahn couldn't be happier to see the books' success

"Traditionally zines and comics seem to occupy the less respected end of illustration, so to see a self-published work recognised in this was is very encouraging."

The World Illustration Awards are an annual honour organised by the Association of Illustrators, with the Directory of Illustration, now in its 40th year.
