Specimen: A Cabinet for your Curiosities


A build-your-own wunderkammer minizine!


Product Description

This is an interactive fold-out minizine designed to act as a cabinet of curiosities! This tiny book contains illustrations of containers and specimen jars, and folds out into a poster depicting a cabinet- you can fill these containers and shelves with whatever you want! Bones, butterflies, shrines, medical ephemera- it’s all appropriate. Specimens can be drawn in, collaged, or written- whatever works for you.

Each zine is printed from one piece of 8.5×11 paper, so each page is roughly 4.25×2.75. 

Meet the Maker

Hi friends, I'm Jam! I draw creatures, plants, buildings, things I find on the sidewalk, and unhinged still-life tableaus. For the last three years, I've worked as a family educator during free drop-in family programming at the Garfield Park Conservatory, making art in my free time. While I can't participate as directly right now, I still want to create work that helps people engage with urban biodiversity.  Shifting my focus to art full-time means I will be able to tackle larger projects that I've been working towards, such as self-published comics, character design, and larger multi-media works. Additionally, I love an excuse to participate in my multi-generational family vocation of mailing people weird art!
